Greening was designated for waivers by the Leafs on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Greening was unable to get on the ice for Toronto last year, as he spent the entire campaign with the Marlies. In the minors, the 31-year-old garnered 10 goals and 14 assists in 69 contests. With 286 NHL games under his belt, the center should be among the potential call-ups throughout the 2017-18 season.

Greening has signed a one-year deal with the Maple Leafs.

EDGE Analysis

Greening was a staple for the AHL Toronto Marlies, collecting 24 points (10 goals, 14 assists) in 69 regular-season games. He added four points in 11 Calder Cup playoff games. Greening will be a key depth guy for the Marlies again this year.

Greening was placed on waivers by the Maple Leafs on Sunday, Bob McKenzie of TSN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Generally, Greening is a fringe NHL player but he saw extensive action with the Maple Leafs (30 games) in 2015-16 due to an onslaught of injuries for the club. The group has now returned to nearly full health, and the 30-year-old failed to secure a spot with the team.

Greening netted a goal and added an assist in 17:33 of ice time in Thursday's 4-3 win over the Flyers.

EDGE Analysis

April has apparently been the month that Greening was waiting for, as he now has goals in three of his last four games. Unfortunately for the Leafs, the timing couldn't be worse, as they have only one game remaining and nothing to play for the. Greening will have plenty of opportunities in the Leafs next game against the Devils to finish the season on a high note.

Greening had two goals in Toronto's 4-3 loss to Florida on Monday night.

EDGE Analysis

One came on the power play. The tall Newf has 13 points in 27 games for the Leafs this season. Greening is a role player at this point in his career and that means there's minimal fantasy value in his game. But he does have three goals in his last two games and may get more opportunities with Nazem Kadri suspended.

Greening was called back up by the Leafs on Monday, Kevin McGran of the Toronto Star reports.

EDGE Analysis

Just sent down Sunday, Greening comes right back to the Leafs along with a wave of young players. The speedy forward is projected to return to a third-line role in which he'll continue holding minimal fantasy value.

Greening was assigned to AHL Toronto on Sunday, Chris Johnston of Sportsnet reports.

EDGE Analysis

Greening made eight appearances with the Leafs following his Feb. 9 acquisition from the Senators, tallying one goal and two assists on 18 shot attempts. His demotion could signal that the Leafs expect to have at least one of Tyler Bozak (head) or Milan Michalek (finger) back in the fold for Monday's game against the Lightning.

Greening scored his first goal of the year while skating 18:17 in Thursday's 4-2 loss to the Rangers.

EDGE Analysis

It was his first goal since Dec. 29, 2014, when Greening was still a Senator, and that goal was his only point in 26 games last season. Once upon a time, Greening was a 37-point man, but his career fell on hard times in Ottawa. He has, however, been seeing solid ice time since being dealt to Toronto in the Dion Phaneuf trade, including his highest yet Thursday. He's been over 17 minutes, including heavy power-play time, in three of his four games as a Leaf and has provided points in the last two games, so clearly coach Mike Babcock has seen something he likes.

Greening has joined the Maple Leafs rather than the club's AHL affiliate as an emergency recall, and is slated to draw into the lineup Thursday, Mark Masters of TSN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Expected to be bound for the team's AHL affiliate, Greening will instead join an injury-depleted Maple Leafs club. He took part in the team's morning skate Thursday, playing alongside Mark Arcobello and P.A. Parentau on the team's second line, and seems destined to slot in there for the evening's contest against the Oilers. However, his stay with the parent club likely won't last past the returns of the Maple Leafs' normal forwards.

Greening was traded to the Maple Leafs on Tuesday along with Milan Michalek, Jared Cowen, Tobias Lindberg and a draft pick in exchange for Dion Phaneuf and several prospects.

EDGE Analysis

Once a regular with the Sens, Greening had been toiling in AHL Binghamton, where he put up a modest 13 points to accompany a minus-9 rating in 41 games. He'll likely report to the Leafs' AHL club, the Toronto Marlies.
