26-Year-Old Left WingLW
Toronto Maple Leafs
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.

Gets first goal in blue and white
LWToronto Maple Leafs
October 16, 2021
Bunting scored a goal Saturday in a 3-1 win over Ottawa.
ANALYSIS
It was Bunting's first goal in blue and white, and his second point in three games. Saturday, he fired three shots and was credited with four hits and a block in 15:20. He also got over a minute on the power play. Bunting's versatility and strong play could see him shuffle up to a scoring line, especially with Nick Ritchie off to a slow start. If so, get ready to claim him.
