Top Timothy Liljegren News

  • Maple Leafs' Timothy Liljegren: Provides pair of helpers

    Liljegren notched two assists, two shots on goal, three hits and four blocked shots in Wednesday's 6-3 win over the Coyotes.

    Liljegren helped get the Maple Leafs on the right path early, providing both assists in the first period. He has seven helpers over his last four games -- he's stepped up in a big way while the team's defense corps has been missing multiple regulars. Liljegren is likely to see a reduced role starting Thursday, as Morgan Rielly is poised to return from a five-game suspension. Liljegren has 16 points, 41 shots on net, 53 hits, 83 blocked shots and a plus-7 rating over 38 appearances, and he should still remain in a top-four role.

  • Maple Leafs' Timothy Liljegren: Three assists in win

    Liljegren recorded three assists in Saturday's 9-2 victory over Anaheim.

    Two of Liljegren's three helpers came on the power play as the Leafs cruised to a lopsided win. The 24-year-old blueliner now has five assists in his last two contests after going 11 games without a point. Overall, Liljegren's up to 14 points (two goals, 12 assists) through 36 games this season. He should continue to work on Toronto's top pairing and power-play unit while Mark Giordano (personal) and Morgan Rielly (suspension) are unavailable.

  • Maple Leafs' Timothy Liljegren: Pair of points in loss

    Liljegren scored a goal on three shots, dished an assist, added two hits and went plus-2 in Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Hurricanes.

    Liljegren got the Maple Leafs on the board early in the third period and helped out on Nick Robertson's tally in the final minute. Both of Liljegren's multi-point efforts have come in the last five games, a span in which he has one goal and four helpers. The 24-year-old is at six points, 14 shots on net, 18 hits, 41 blocked shots and an even plus-minus rating through 17 appearances this season. He should continue to hold down a bottom-four role with power-play time, which could give him fantasy appeal in deeper formats.

  • Maple Leafs' Timothy Liljegren: Two helpers in Buffalo

    Liljegren collected two assists, one on the power play and one shorthanded, in Thursday's 9-3 loss to the Sabres.

    He also added five blocked shots, three shots on net, two hits and a minus-1 rating to his ledger. It's the first multi-point performance of the season for Liljegren, who missed six weeks earlier this season due to an ankle injury, and through 13 contests he has zero goals and three helpers. The 24-year-old blueliner has supplied a little extra fantasy value with 33 blocked shots, including 15 in three games since his return to the lineup, but Liljegren would likely need to work his way up to Toronto's first power-play unit to be worth rostering in most formats.

  • Maple Leafs' Timothy Liljegren: Returns to action Saturday

    Liljegren (ankle) will be activated from LTIR ahead of his return to the lineup versus Pittsburgh on Saturday, according to David Alter of Sports Illustrated.

    Liljegren will return from a 17-game absence after suffering a high-ankle sprain versus the Bruins on Nov. 2. He could be paired with Morgan Rielly in Saturday's contest because T.J. Brodie (illness) may be unavailable. Liljegren has one assist, six goals on goal, 18 blocked shots and eight hits in 10 games this season.

  • Maple Leafs' Timothy Liljegren: Still working toward return

    Liljegren (ankle) is close to getting back into the lineup but needs to ramp up his conditioning, David Alter of Sports Illustrated reports Thursday.

    Liljegren won't be ready to face the Blue Jackets on Thursday but could be an option shortly thereafter, perhaps even against the Penguins on Saturday. Until the 24-year-old blueliner is cleared to play, Simon Benoit figures to remain on the third pairing.

  • Maple Leafs' Timothy Liljegren: Practicing Saturday

    Liljegren (ankle) is back at practice Saturday, according to Terry Koshan of The Toronto Sun.

    Liljegren is seeing time at the morning skate as the seventh defenseman. He has been out of action since Nov. 2 due to a high-ankle sprain and still has plenty of work to do before he gets back into the lineup. Liljegren has one assist in 10 games this season.

  • Maple Leafs' Timothy Liljegren: Placed on long-term injured reserve

    The Maple Leafs put Liljegren (ankle) on long-term injured reserve Saturday.

    Liljegren suffered a high-ankle sprain late in the first period of Thursday's 3-2 shootout loss to Boston, Chris Johnston of The Athletic reports. He won't be eligible to return before Nov. 30 against Seattle. It's a tough loss for the Maple Leafs because Liljegren was eating up valuable minutes as a second-pairing defenseman. Liljegren has one assist, 18 blocked shots and eight hits in 10 games this season.

  • Maple Leafs' Timothy Liljegren: Will miss significant time

    Liljegren's lower-body injury is significant and he will miss time, David Alter of Sports Illustrated reports.

    Head coach Sheldon Keefe provided that update after the Maple Leafs' 3-2 shootout loss to the Bruins. Liljegren was hurt in a collision with Brad Marchand. With Liljegren out and Jake McCabe (groin) not ready to play yet, the Maple Leafs will likely need to make a call-up prior to Saturday's game versus the Sabres.

  • Maple Leafs' Timothy Liljegren: Exits contest

    Liljegren (lower body) won't return to Thursday's game versus the Bruins.

    Liljegren was hurt after logging just 4:49 of ice time in the contest. This is the second time in a week he's left a game early, but his previous injury was an upper-body issue. If Liljegren can't shake off this injury before Saturday's game versus the Sabres, the Maple Leafs will have to either call up a defenseman or play one player short to unlock the ability for emergency recalls.

  • Maple Leafs' Timothy Liljegren: Good to go

    Liljegren (upper body) will be in the lineup for Tuesday's game versus Los Angeles, NHL.com's Dave McCarthy reports.

    Liljegren exited Saturday's loss to the Predators with an upper-body issue after recording just 11:45 of ice time, but it appears the injury that forced him from that contest wasn't overly serious. Look for the 24-year-old Swede, who's picked up one helper through eight games this season, to skate on the second pairing and the second power-play unit against the Kings.

  • Maple Leafs' Timothy Liljegren: Injury clarified

    Liljegren suffered an upper-body injury in Saturday's game versus the Predators, Mark Masters of TSN reports.

    The Maple Leafs initially reported Liljegren's injury was a lower-body issue when he exited the contest. In any case, the defenseman remains day-to-day ahead of Tuesday's game versus the Kings.

  • Maple Leafs' Timothy Liljegren: Suffers lower-body injury

    Liljegren sustained a lower-body injury and is doubtful to return to Saturday's game versus Nashville.

    Liljegren left the contest midway through the second period after absorbing a hit from the Predators' Yakov Trenin, David Alter of Sports Illustrated reports. Going into Saturday's action, Liljegren had an assist, five hits and 13 blocks in seven appearances while averaging 20:16 of ice time this season. Another Maple Leafs defenseman, Jake McCabe, suffered a lower-body injury Thursday, so Toronto will probably need to call someone up if neither blueliner is available for Tuesday's contest against the Kings.

  • Maple Leafs' Timothy Liljegren: First goal in 18 games

    Liljegren scored a goal Thursday in a 3-2 win over the Rangers.

    Liljegren tied the game 1-1 early in the third period from just inside the right circle, banking a shot off Niko Mikkola's stick blade that fluttered through Jaroslav Halak's five-hole. It was Liljegren's first point in 10 games and his first goal in 18 appearances. The Leafs will release their playoff roster soon and it remains to be seen if Liljegren will be on the bench or in the media box to start the first round.

  • Maple Leafs' Timothy Liljegren: Ice time dropping

    Liljegren saw his ice time drop to 10:52 in a 6-2 win over Florida on Thursday.

    Liljegren has started to fade just as the often maligned Justin Holl has started to stabilize his possession game. And while he had an assist in each of his last two games, Liljegren may find himself down the lineup or in the media box as the team approaches the playoffs if this play continues.

  • Maple Leafs' Timothy Liljegren: Goal and assist in win

    Liljegren scored a goal on four shots, added an assist and went plus-2 in Sunday's 5-1 win over the Kraken.

    Liljegren set up a Mark Giordano tally in the first period and then scored one of his own later in the frame. Sunday's two-point effort snapped a 10-game dry spell for Liljegren, who went plus-2 with 13 shots on net and 18 blocked shots in that span. The 23-year-old blueliner has the potential to be a solid depth contributor, but fantasy managers will likely want to see him sustain some offense before picking him up. He has five goals, 10 helpers, 61 shots on net, 82 hits, 74 blocked shots and a plus-26 rating through 49 appearances this season.

  • Maple Leafs' Timothy Liljegren: Moves to second pair against Hawks

    Liljegren will move into the top four for Wednesday's game against Chicago, reports Sportsnet.ca.

    Justin Holl will be a scratch this Wednesday for the first time this season and that opens up a spot for Liljegren to slide in beside Mark Giordano on the second pair. Liljegren's development has catapulted him over fellow Swede Rasmus Sandin on the team depth chart.
