D - Toronto Maple Leafs
Mark Giordano picked up one assist in the Maple Leafs' 4-0 win over the Stars Tuesday night.
Giordano has not been a very big point producer early in the season for the Maple Leafs, as the veteran blueliner provides much of his energy on the ice to bolstering an injury-ravaged blueline corps while posting a +11 plus/minus ratio for the club. Giordano 's value may not show up on the stat sheet on a regular basis, but he still has the ability to flash explosive point production and improve on his seven points (one goal, six assists) in 27 games so far this season.
Mark Giordano notched three assists in Saturday's 4-1 win over the Senators.
Giordano will look to make more of an impact in Toronto with the benefit of playing the entire 2022-23 season with the club. The veteran defenseman finished with eight goals and 27 assists through 75 games last season, and projects as a mid-to-late round selection for fantasy managers looking to wait on the position in fantasy drafts.
Maple Leafs defenseman Mark Giordano picked up two assists and scored the winning goal in overtime, finishing with three points Saturday in the Maple Leafs' 5-4 win over the Senators.
Giordano has now picked up points in three of his last five games for Toronto, scoring one goal and adding four assists in that span. The veteran defenseman makes more of a consistent impact in the defensive zone, with just eight goals and 23 assists in 68 games with the Kraken and Maple Leafs this season.
Defenseman Mark Giordano has been traded to the Toronto Maple Leafs along with forward Colin Blackwell in exchange for two second-round picks and a third-round pick to the Seattle Kraken.
Toronto gets their stay-at-home defenseman before the trade deadline as they look to make a deep playoff run in the Eastern Conference.
Giordano opened the scoring when Seattle hosted the Bruins with a shorthanded goal in the first period.
The veteran Kraken defensman now has 23 points (6 goals, 17 assists) on the season as he approaches his 1000th game played.
