Van Riemsdyk scored the opening goal of Toronto's 3-2 loss to Columbus on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

JVR has really struggled as of late, having managed just three points since the Leafs' outburst against Carolina on Dec. 19. He's now behind his pace for last year in points and needs to get back on track quickly for his owners.

Van Riemsdyk scored a power-play goal and recorded two assists during Tuesday's 8-1 win over Carolina.

EDGE Analysis

It'd been 10 games since van Riemsdyk's last multi-point showing, and he had just three goals and no assists during that stretch. However, the winger has now piled up 16 tallies and nine helpers through 34 games this season and is well on his way to a career-best showing in the goal column. The offensive peaks and valleys might continue, but at the end of the season, expect van Riemsdyk's numbers to be solid.

Van Riemsdyk scored the Leafs' only goal Saturday in a 2-1 loss to the Canucks.

EDGE Analysis

JVR has been largely invisible in the last couple games, so this was a nice effort that might keep him out of the coach's doghouse. Still, Van Riemsdyk is on pace to hit the 60-point mark, but his game still occasionally slips into comatose. There's value in a 60-point winger, but better consistency would keep his value in a much higher place.

Van Riemsdyk scored his 12th goal of the season and added an assist in Friday's win over the Hurricanes.

EDGE Analysis

Van Riemsdyk has been tearing up the goal column recently, notching seven goals in his last nine games. He's fired a whopping 71 shots on goal in 23 contests and picked up five of his tallies with the man advantage. JVR set a career high in points (62) last season and could very well surpass his previous career high in goals (30) this time around. The sniper is simply a must-start whenever the Leafs are in action.

Van Riemsdyk scored his team's only marker in a 4-1 Monday loss to Arizona.

EDGE Analysis

Van Riemsdyk remained hot, as he's now scored six goals in seven games. His teammates, however, did not, as the Leafs had a rare off-night against the league's weakest team. JVR is much more likely to keep producing than Toronto is to have many more one-goal games.

Van Riemsdyk scoured his 10th goal of the season in Saturday's 6-0 win over the Canadiens.

EDGE Analysis

JVR has five goals and one assist in his last six games. At this rate, Van Riemsdyk will charge toward a 40-goal season. And a huge payday on the free agent market come July.

Van Riemsdyk scored a power-play goal that stood as the winner in Saturday's 4-1 victory over Boston. He also picked up an assist.

EDGE Analysis

So that's three goals and a helper in his last two games. Slowly, JVR is picking up the pace and now has 15 points, including nine goals, in 18 games. Expect good things now that he has been reunited with Mitch Marner and Tyler Bozak.

Van Riemsdyk went off for two goals -- including his depositing a man-advantage marker -- in Friday night's 3-2 overtime win over the Bruins.

EDGE Analysis

JVR found little resistance slicing through the attacking zone Friday, as he put seven shots on netminder Anton Khudobin. It's a little too easy to forget about a talented veteran like van Riemsdyk since 2017 Calder Trophy winner Auston Matthews is hogging the spotlight, but Matthews has missed the last two games with an upper-body injury and that's led to more reliance on the 28-year-old American scoring winger.

Van Riemsdyk had his first goal since coming back from an undisclosed injury in a 4-3 Monday win in the shootout against Vegas.

EDGE Analysis

Van Riemsdyk looks like he's back to where he was before his injury, and fantasy owners will be thrilled that he's again at the level they expect. Having fully recovered from injury, he should now be back in your starting lineup

Van Riemsdyk (undisclosed) will return to action against the Sharks on Monday, Jonas Siegel of The Athletic Toronto reports.

EDGE Analysis

Van Riemsdyk -- who has registered five goals and four helpers to start the year -- is continuing to excel offensively, despite logging nearly two minutes less of ice time compared to the 2016-17 campaign. The Maple Leafs are one of just a few clubs whose lines are relatively interchangeable, so fantasy owners probably shouldn't panic even if it looks like the winger has been relegated to a third-line role. Back from a one-game absence, Van Riemsdyk figures to play alongside Tyler Bozak and Mitch Marner.
