Observations:

 

July 2015 – Sill can currently be found as a Free Agent. Despite dressing in all but one game after his trade from Pittsburgh, he was not able to show enough to warrant being kept on for the Toronto rebuild. He is likely to be found in the AHL or Europe in the fall, NHL dreams seem like they are pretty distant now. Jason Banks

February 2015 – On February 25th, Toronto Maple Leafs acquired Zach Sill, along with a 2015 4th round pick and 2016 2nd round selection. In return, Toronto sent forward Daniel Winnik to the Pittsburgh Penguins. Zach Sill’s value remains the same as he will likely replace part of Winnik’s departing minutes in Toronto. Brendan Ross

 

January 2015 – Signed by the Pittsburgh Penguins in May of 2011 after playing with their affiliate Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, Zach Sill is an agitating aggressive forward who brings a ton of energy to the rink. Sill made his NHL debut in 2013-14 with Pittsburgh suiting up in 20 games going pointless with a dozen penalty minutes. He’s earned a more stable role with the Penguins in 2014-15 getting into 42 games while recording one goal and three points, with 60 penalty minutes. Sill excels at playing a physical game and owns a solid defensive awareness while playing both wing and the centre position. Brendan Ross

 

Fantasy Outlook: D

Sill is a bottom-line versatile agitating forward who has the ability to chip in hits and penalty minutes, m
