St Louis Blues

The Maple Leafs have traded Nikita Soshnikov to the Blues in exchange for a 2018 fourth-round draft pick.

The Leafs were forced into making a decision on Soshnikov; they had a full roster and, upon activating Soshnikov from injured reserve, would have had to place one of Soshnikov, Josh Leivo, or Matt Martin on waivers. Soshnikov has 0 points in 3 games with the Maple Leafs this year, but has 17 in 19 games with the Marlies (AHL).

Soshnikov has returned from his conditioning stint with Toronto (AHL) and will remain on injured reserve until he is cleared to play by team doctors.

The Leafs currently do not have an open roster spot for Soshnikov, which explains the delay in removing him from injured reserve. Once he is cleared they will be forced to either make a spot for him or risk losing him on waivers.

The Maple Leafs are expected to send Nikita Soshnikov to Toronto (AHL) on a conditioning stint.

Soshnikov has not played since November 24th and Mike Babcock anticipates that he will go to the AHL for a conditioning stint before he returns to the Maple Leafs lineup. This is probably the right call considering the 24-year-old has only appeared in three NHL games this season.

The Maple Leafs have recalled Nikita Soshnikov from Toronto (AHL).

Soshnikov had to be recalled today by the latest or he was eligible to return to the KHL according to a clause in his contract. The 24-year-old also earned a call-up by recording five goals and seven assists (12 points) in 14 games with the Marlies. Soshnikov has seven goals and seven assists (14 points) in 67 career games with the Maple Leafs.

Soshnikov (upper-body) is questionable for Saturday.

Soshnikov was a late scratch for Thursday’s game vs. the Blues and despite skating on Friday, he remains a question mark for Saturday’s contest. This shouldn’t be a huge concern to fantasy players, as the young winger has tallied just four goals and three assists (seven points) in 42 games this season.
