2018 Fantasy Outlook
Haley established himself as a pure enforcer in his first season with the Panthers last season, racking up a league-leading 212 penalty minutes. For perspective, no other player even reached 200 PIM. The 5-foot-11 journeyman only scored three goals and nine points while averaging 7:47 of ice time last year, and he has just 25 points in 205 career NHL contests. Haley should continue turning in a scant offensive output when he's in the lineup. After all, Florida revamped its forward group over the offseason and the 32-year-old hasn't secured an everyday role. Read Past Outlooks

Ankle
April 18, 2019
Haley (ankle) will not play in Thursday's Game 5 matchup with the Golden Knights, Curtis Pashelka of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
ANALYSIS
Haley missed Game 4 with this ankle injury as well. If the Sharks are able to stave off elimination Thursday, the Ontario native's next chance to play would be a Game 6 matchup in Vegas on Sunday. While Haley didn't contribute much on offense in the first three games, he was able to lend a hand on defense, dishing out eight hits and blocking three shots.

A career journeyman since he turned pro in 2006-07, Haley was finally able to latch on to an NHL club for a full season in 2016-17, taking part in a career-high 58 games while logging two goals, 10 assists, 12 points, and 128 PIM — all of which were also career bests. Having scored a total of five goals and 16 points in 130 NHL games, Haley is never going to make any sort of consistent impact on the offensive end, but his gritty, uncompromising style of play still carries value. This was evidenced when Florida signed him to a two-year, one-way contract in the offseason, where he will essentially be a replacement in the Panthers lineup for recently retired enforcer Shawn Thornton. While players of Haley’s ilk still play a role when it comes to winning games on the ice, the only way to justify carrying him on a fantasy roster is if your league places emphasis on hits and PIM.
After spending parts of three seasons with the rival Islanders, Michael Haley expected a fresh start. However, in a lockout shortened season, things were just more of the same for Haley who dressed for just nine games with the blue shirts, collecting 12 penalty minutes and 21 hits. The 27-year-old center's playing time is not likely to change with new head coach, Alain Vigneault, but who knows. For good measure, in 52 career NHL games, he has registered just two goals, one assist and 163 penalty minutes, leaving very little reason to monitor his progress.
Haley signed a two-year contract with the Rangers this offseason and faces tough odds to break camp with the Blueshirts as they begin the season. He is largely employed for his pugilistic skills, so while he may not be on many fantasy owners' radars, he is worth a look in leagues that count penalty minutes if he starts the season in the NHL.
Haley is sort of miscast as an enforcer as he is not the biggest of fellows, but is certainly not afraid to drop the gloves with anyone. What could make him valuable in fantasy leagues, especially late in drafts is that not only will he rack up the PIMs, but he will also add a little goal scoring as he was leading Bridgeport of the AHL in goals at the time of his call-up last season.
With 196 penalty minutes in 65 games for Bridgeport of the AHL last season, you can just guess what his value is to the Isles. That being said the Islanders are not short of this type of player and although he got a two game cameo appearance for the Isles late last season, Haley is ticketed to begin the 2010-11 season with Bridgeport once again.
