Description: Maple Leafs right wing David Clarkson should not be drafted in fantasy leagues.
Insight: While he provides penalty minutes, Clarkson is an irrelevant fantasy player. His career-high in points is 46, but will most likely be around the 20-point plateau in 2014-15.

Description: Leafs right wing David Clarkson left Saturday's game against the NY Rangers after taking a shot by Michael Del Zotto off the foot.
Insight: Clarkson has three goals and five assists in 31 games this season. A minus rating and just 59 shots don't help him get onto a fantasy roster. He last had fantasy value in 2011 when he put the puck in the net 30 times.

Description: Winger David Clarkson scored his first goal with the Maple Leafs Tuesday against the Islanders.
Insight: He's picked up a point in three straight games. The 29-year-old is still putting up plenty of penalty minutes but he's not taking nearly as many SOG as he did during the last three seasons with New Jersey.
 
10/25/2013 10:42:00 AM
Description: Toronto forward David Clarkson has served his 10-game suspension and could play Friday's game against Columbus.
Insight: In his first season with the Maple Leafs, Clarkson will play on the No. 2 line with Mason Raymond and Dave Bolland. He carries good fantasy value for his goal scoring (30 in 2011) and PIM.
 
10/22/2013 11:51:00 AM
Description: Toronto forward David Clarkson's 10-game suspension will be over after Tuesday's game with Anaheim.
Insight: He's eligible to return Oct. 25. In his first season with the Maple Leafs, Clarkson will play a top-six role and carries good fantasy value for his goal scoring (30 in 2011) and PIM.
 
9/24/2013 7:33:00 PM
Description: According to the Toronto Star, Toronto forward David Clarkson's 10-game suspension was made official Monday night.
Insight: Clarkson came off the bench to defend Phil Kessel in what turned out to be a major brawl during Sunday's preseason game. He's eligible to return Oct. 25, but he could appeal to have his suspension shortened. In his first season with the Maple Leafs, Clarkson will play a top-six role. He carries good fantasy value for his goal scoring and PIM.
 
9/23/2013 9:41:00 PM
Description: Suspensions could be on the way for Toronto forwards David Clarkson and Phil Kessel.
Insight: Both were involved in a major brawl Sunday against Buffalo. Six-foot-eight John Scott of the Sabres tried to goad Kessel into fighting which led to Kessel slashing at him with his stick. Clarkson left the bench during the fight, which draws an automatic ten-game suspension. We expect the league to hand out punishments shortly.

Overall, he's on a similar pace to last season, when he had 30 goals and 46 points in 80 games. Per 82 games this season, he's on a 26-goal and 43-point pace.

Insight: Clarkson, a 30-goal scorer last season, is off to a great start with 10 goals, six assists and 67 shots in 16 games. He's also producing his usual high-PIM total (35), making him one of the best all-around players in fantasy hockey.
