Gustavsson Pulled From AHL Game

Just a quick note on Jonas Gustavsson during a day full of other Leafs news. The Marlies played an early game today, starting at 11 AM, against the Connecticut Whale. Gustavsson started the game, but was pulled after the first period with what was described as a “heart-rate problem.” Team officials were quick to note that it was “precautionary,” and Gustavsson went so far as to say he could have gone back in in the 3rd period, but it’s certainly not what the Monster and the Leafs’ front office want to hear regarding the kid’s progress. He’s already had enough health issues, so here’s hoping this doesn’t start another rash of heart problems like the ones that sidelined him last season.
