EDGE Analysis

Hainsey can be deployed as normal for Saturday's road game against the Wild. The veteran is getting it done on both ends of the ice, adding three goals and eight helpers to complement a plus-16 rating over 26 games and 19:47 of average ice time.

Hainsey took a puck to the face during Thursday's practice, Terry Koshan of The Toronto Sun reports.

EDGE Analysis

With a few days before the Maple Leafs' next contest, Hainsey will have time to recover and should be available versus Minnesota on Saturday -- although no official reports have come out from the team regarding his status. In the event the veteran blueliner does miss time, Martin Marincin or Justin Holl figures to slot into the lineup.

Hainsey picked up two assists in Friday's 6-1 win over the Devils.

EDGE Analysis

He also chipped in two shots, three blocked shots, two hits and a plus-2 rating. Hainsey hasn't posted more than 26 points in a season in nearly a decade, but the veteran defenseman is thriving alongside breakout star Morgan Rielly on the Leafs' blue line, scoring two goals and eight points through 16 games so far.

Hainsey (undisclosed) will play Saturday against Winnipeg, Terry Koshan of The Toronto Sun reports.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran defenseman was injured Wednesday and forced to leave the game. The added days off certainly helped Hainsey in his recovery and as a result, he will be in the lineup for Saturday's home contest against the Jets. For the season, the 37-year-old blueliner has two goals and two assists in 10 games.

Hainsey was injured late in Wednesday's game against the Jets, Lance Hornby of The Toronto Sun reports.

EDGE Analysis

Fortunately, Hainsey will have Thursday and Friday to rest up before the Maple Leafs return to action, but clarification regarding his injury and a timeline for return should be established in the coming days. If both he and Travis Dermott (illness) are unable to suit up Saturday, Justin Holl may be in line to make his season debut for Toronto.

Hainsey scored an empty-net goal Thursday in a 5-3 win over Detroit.

EDGE Analysis

It comes on the heels of a two-point effort (one goal, one assist) on Tuesday. Hainsey is not known for his offense, so chalk this up as a great week and wish him well.

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.
