Hainsey notched four goals and 23 points while posting a plus-12 rating in 80 games this campaign.

EDGE Analysis

The 37-year-old blueliner averaged 21:52 of ice time per contest in 2017-18, and was a key member of Toronto's penalty-killing unit. Hainsey won't produce enough offense to be considered a desirable option in most season-long fantasy formats next year, but the Maple Leafs will be happy to have him back as an important veteran presence on their blue line.

Hainsey (illness) will return to the lineup Saturday against the Bruins, Kristen Shilton of TSN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hainsey has missed two consecutive games due to the illness, but he was aiming for a Saturday return against the Bruins. He's hit that target and will retake the ice, looking to build off of the 18 points (three goals, 15 assists) he's recorded over 51 games as part of an impressive Maple Leafs attack. He will pair with Morgan Rielly (arm) on Saturday, who is returning from an injury of his own.

Hainsey (illness) is expected to return to the lineup for Saturday's matchup against the Bruins, Jonas Siegel of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hainsey's illness will keep him out of Thursday's matchup, but he's apparently made enough progress to put him in a probable position for Saturday. More information on him should surface over the next couple of days, confirming the blueliner's status for the contest.

Hainsey (illness) isn't on the ice for pregame warmups, indicating he won't be in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Islanders, Kristen Shilton of TSN.ca reports.

EDGE Analysis

With Hainsey unavailable, Justin Holl will draw into the lineup and make his NHL debut against the Islanders. The Maple Leafs are right back at it Thursday against the Rangers, so Hainsey may be in danger of missing multiple contests due to his illness.

Hainsey (illness) will be a game-time decision for Wednesday's clash with the Islanders.

EDGE Analysis

If Hainsey's unable to go, the recently recalled Justin Holl will draw into the lineup against the Islanders. The veteran blueliner's availability for Wednesday's contest likely won't be determined until the Maple Leafs take the ice for pregame warmups.

Hainsey is currently on pace for his best offensive season since 2008-09.

EDGE Analysis

His 14 points in 34 games project to the low 30s; he had 39 points in 2008-09. Hainsey has never been a big offensive guy, but his steady production does make him relevant in deep leagues.

Hainsey scored his second goal of the season and added a helper in Friday's win over Carolina.

EDGE Analysis

Hainsey came up big against his former team and finished the night with 23:57 of ice time. Hainsey logs some heavy minutes and has put together a solid 12 points in 24 contests. His lack of power-play time hurts his fantasy value, but Hainsey's solid plus-7 rating and prominent role make him of value in deeper leagues. Don't buy into the hype too much, however, as Hainsey isn't typically known for his offense and the last time he recorded over 20 points was 2009-10. Know what you're getting.

Hainsey had two assists and a plus-3 rating in a 3-1 win over the Ducks on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Hainsey is off to a hot start for Toronto, as he already has nine points, all assists, through 13 games. While the Leafs have a potent offense, Hainsey hasn't had more than 19 points since the 2009-10 season, so this start is not likely to be sustained.

Hainsey picked up two assists in Saturday's 6-3 loss to the Senators.

EDGE Analysis

Hainsey has six helpers in eight games so far; Saturday was his first multi-point game as a Leaf. Way back when, Hainsey had a 39-point season. It's hard to think it might happen again, but Hainsey will benefit from that high-powered young offense. He may be worth plucking off the wire.

Hainsey went plus-2 with 24:43 of ice time in Tuesday's 2-0 road win over the Capitals.

EDGE Analysis

After winning the 2017 Stanley Cup with Pittsburg, Hainsey signed with the Buds in the offseason, and so far he's proven to be a solid pickup. With three assists and a plus-3 rating, the 36-year-old is gelling on Toronto's top defensive pair with Morgan Rielly. Don't expect miracles from the former, but he'll add stability to your fantasy team much like he does for Toronto from the back end.
