1/10/2014 9:43:00 AM
Description: Buffalo left wing Ville Leino missed Thursday's game against Minnesota due to a lower body injury and is questionable for Sunday's game against Washington.
Insight: Leino doesn't hold much fantasy value with six points in 26 games and a -6 rating.
 
1/2/2014 11:55:00 AM
Description: Buffalo left wing Ville Leino will miss Thursday's game against Minnesota due to a lower body injury.
Insight: Leino doesn't hold much fantasy value with six points in 26 games and a -6 rating.
 
10/4/2013 10:53:00 AM
Description: Buffalo left wing Ville Leino is out indefinitely with a fractured rib.
Insight: Leino has missed much of this season due to a hip injury, but in the eight March games he played, scored six points (2 G, 4 A). Looks like he's going to be out for a while, so let him go unless you have an open spot on your roster.
 
4/1/2013 11:55:00 AM
Description: Buffalo left wing Ville Leino is questionable for Tuesday's game against Pittsburgh with an upper body injury.
Insight: Leino has missed much of this season due to a hip injury, but in the eight March games he played, scored six points (2 G, 4 A).
 
3/30/2013 9:51:00 PM
Description: Buffalo left wing Ville Leino scored his first two goals of the season Saturday in a shootout loss to Washington.
Insight: It took Leino eight games to finally find the net. He's averaging almost a point per game this season and should be monitored in all formats.
 
3/16/2013 6:22:00 PM
Description: Sabres left wing Ville Leino logged almost 16 minutes of ice time in his season debut Saturday against Ottawa.
Insight: Leino has been out all season because of a hip issue. He looked sharp in his return, assisting on Mike Weber's goal in the first period. The 29-year-old finished the afternoon with a +1 rating.
 
3/16/2013 11:35:00 AM
Description: Buffalo winger Ville Leino could be activated and make his season debut on Saturday against Ottawa.
Insight: Leino was a fantasy asset in 2010, but last season produced just 25 points with a -2 rating and just 16 penalty minutes. There is no reason to rush him back onto fantasy rosters until you see the level at which he is performing.
 
12/15/2011 1:43:00 AM
Description: Ville Leino will be sidelined indefinitely with a lower-body injury. TSN
Insight: Leino has been playing better recently with five points in his last seven games, but his first season in Buffalo has not been a good one. He has been a bust in fantasy leagues with three goals and ten points in 29 games.
 
12/9/2011 12:26:00 AM
Description: The NHL has suspended Ville Leino one game for his elbow to the head of Matt Read during Wednesday's game. TSN
Insight: Read did not appear to be hurt on the play, but it was Leino's clear attempt to elbow Read in the head that earned him the suspension.
 
7/1/2011 4:11:00 PM
Description: The Buffalo Sabres have signed Ville Leino to a six-year contract worth $27 million. TSN
Insight: The Flyers seemed hesitant to give Leino a long-term deal and decided to head in another direction when they signed Jaromir Jagr. Meanwhile, the Sabres promised to spend more money and have delivered, first signing Christian Ehrhoff and now Leino. Their new forward should easily fit into the Sabres' top 6, a situation that he didn't always have with the Flyers.
 
4/24/2011 6:49:00 PM
Description: Ville Leino scored the game-winning goal in overtime and added an assist in the Flyers' 5-4 come-from-behind win over Buffalo in Game 6 on Sunday. Yahoo Sports
Insight: Leino, who emerged as a real scoring threat during last year's playoffs, had just one goal and no assists in the previous five games in this series. His goal now forces a winner-take-all Game 7 on Tuesday in Philadelphia.
 
3/30/2011 11:04:00 AM
Description: Leino posted two goals and an assist in the Flyers' 5-2 win over Pittsburgh Tuesday night.
Insight: Those were the first goals for Leino since his March 12 hat trick, giving him 19 for the season. It was also the first time in six games that he finished with a plus rating. (RapidDraft.com)
 
3/29/2011 11:21:00 PM
Description: Ville Leino scored two goals in the third period and added an assist with a +2 in the Flyers' 5-2 win over Pittsburgh on Tuesday. Yahoo Sports
Insight: Leino has posted easily his best season as an NHLer, scoring 52 points (19g-33a) in 75 games this season.
 
3/13/2011 1:48:00 AM
Description: Ville Leino scored three goals in the Flyers' 5-4 overtime loss to Atlanta on Saturday. Yahoo Sports
Insight: Leino's hat trick wasn't enough for the Flyers, who coughed up a two-goal lead with three minutes to play in regulation only to lose in overtime. Leino is a good example of the Flyers' scoring depth, as he became the ninth player on the team to reach 15 goals this season in this game.
 
3/13/2011 12:05:00 AM
Description: Leino notched his first NHL hat trick in a losing effort Saturday, as the Flyers fell in OT.
Insight: It was the first time Leino had scored in eight games. He became the ninth Flyer to reach 15 goals for the season, coming away with 17 for the year. (RapidDraft.com)
 
2/16/2011 8:02:00 PM
Description: Ville Leino missed Wednesday's game against Florida with a lower-body injury, according to Flyers GM Paul Holmgren. Philadelphia Daily News
Insight: Leino is listed as day-to-day, and it doesn't sound as if the injury is anything major. An interesting subplot is that Jody Shelley, and not Nikolai Zherdev, has replaced Leino in the Flyers' lineup.
 
2/4/2011 12:01:00 AM
Description: Leino posted his first career two-goal game Thursday, including the game winner to top Nashville.
Insight: Leino has already played 10 more games than in any previous NHL season, so personal-best stats are no surprise. Further production shouldn't surprise either, according to teammate Jeff Carter who called him one of the team's most talented players after the game. (RapidDraft.com)
 
2/3/2011 10:34:00 PM
Description: Ville Leino scored two goals in the Flyers' 3-2 win over Nashville on Thursday. Yahoo Sports
Insight: Leino snapped a four-game pointless slump and a six-game goalless slump with the two-goal effort. Last season's unexpected playoff sleeper has posted an underrated fantasy line this season with 38 points in 52 games.
 
11/23/2010 8:04:00 AM
Description: Leino scored his fourth goal of the season on Monday night against the Canadiens.
Insight: Leino is off to a great start this year with 17 points in 22 games. (RapidDraft.com)
 
10/22/2010 3:35:00 PM
Description: Ville Leino left Friday's practice early because of a charley horse. Philadelphia Inquirer
Insight: Leino collided with Chris Pronger and injured his right thigh, not the hip that he had offseason surgery on. Leino sounded optimistic that he could still play on Saturday against Toronto, but you may want to err on the side of caution.
