Wayne Simmonds is no longer the player he once was. He's far from the 60-point seasons we saw from him in 2013-2014 and 2015-2016.

Since joining the Leafs in 2020, he has scored 27 points in 128 games.
This season, he lost Keefe's confidence and played only 18 games with the Leafs.
However, he's still a part of the team, and the coach defended him during a press conference.

Sheldon Keefe Shuts Down Reporter Who Assumed Simmonds Played His Last Game With the Leafs

Yesterday, against Montreal, Simmonds showed what he can still bring to the table: grit and fists. Those attributes can be quite useful during the playoffs.
In case you missed it, he completely took down Mickael Pezzetta:
Rumors suggest that the Leafs wanted to give Simmonds a proper farewell in Toronto, in what could be his last game as a Leaf in the city.
After the game, a reporter asked about this, and Keefe didn't appreciate the assumption.
"We're going to play in the playoffs. Wayne is a part of our team. I don't even know why I'm getting these questions."

Even if he didn't play much this season, Simmonds is still a part of the team, as Keefe mentioned.
We'll see if the coach relies on him for the playoffs. If there are any injuries, it wouldn't be surprising to see him on the ice.
