Description: Maple Leafs right wing David Clarkson should not be drafted in fantasy leagues.

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.

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.
