James van Riemsdyk, Auston Matthews provide the elusive American Leafs hat trick

The last time two Americans on the Leafs got hat tricks in the same season? Almost 20 years ago. At present, the Toronto Maple Leafs have six Americans on their roster: Auston Matthews, Ben Smith, James van Riemsdyk, Connor Carrick, Jake Gardiner, and Matt Hunwick. Three of those guys are defencemen, and therefore, less likely to score multiple goals in a game. Multi-point games, sure; a hat trick, probably not. So that brings us down to three. Van Riemsdyk scored the second hat trick of his career against the Nashville Predators - and in doing so, helped the Leafs achieve something they...

Nashville Predators 2, Toronto Maple Leafs 6: JVR, Marner Carry Leafs

Win streak over :( The Predators win streak came to an emphatic end tonight in Toronto. They fell to the Maple Leafs by a score of 6-2.

With Marek Mazanec in net, the Predators needed to provide some extra defensive support and they didn’t really do that. There were plenty more chances for the Leafs to score and Maz had to make 9 more saves in the period to keep the game close. Late in the period, the Preds would...

Blackhawks activate Andrew Desjardins, place Trevor van Riemsdyk on injured reserve

Chicago gets back Desjardins while replacing him on IR with the injured TVR. The Chicago Blackhawks activated forward Andrew Desjardins from injured reserve on Saturday. The team also placed defenseman Trevor van Riemsdyk on IR to clear roster space for Desjardins, who is slated to make his season debut Sunday at home against the Stars, per Chris Hine. The moves do not impact the Hawks’ salary cap situation. Players need to be placed on long-term injured reserve in order to provide temporary cap relief, so Desjardins has been the books all season, TVR will stay on the books now, and...
