26-Year-Old Left WingLW

2021 Fantasy Outlook
Bunting turned a 21-game audition with the Coyotes in 2020-21 into a two-year deal with the Maple Leafs in free agency. The reason: he scored 10 goals and added three assists while logging top-six minutes toward the end of last season. It doesn't take much to realize Bunting will likely experience a drop-off in both ice time and quality of play in 2021-22 -- he converted his shots at 26.3 percent in a limited sample last year on a bad team. The Maple Leafs' wing depth makes it unlikely Bunting cracks Toronto's top six this year, although he could still be effective as an energy winger on the third line. The 25-year-old probably won't top 25 points once regression takes hold, although he could start the year with power-play duties, which would provide a boost to his scoring numbers given the talent around him.

Draws helper against old team
LWToronto Maple Leafs
January 12, 2022
Bunting logged an assist, four shots on goal and two PIM in Wednesday's 2-1 loss to the Coyotes.
ANALYSIS
Bunting, who played his first 26 NHL games with the Coyotes, came back to haunt them with an assist on Auston Matthews' third-period tally. The 26-year-old Bunting has recorded assists in three straight contests after snapping a five-game point drought. The winger is at a career-best 22 points (seven goals, 15 helpers), 72 shots on net, 34 hits, 26 PIM and a plus-3 rating through 35 outings. Bunting's top-six role makes him a solid option in most fantasy formats.
