The Toronto Maple Leafs strong run as of late is even more impressive when you consider the injuries they are dealing with. The Leafs have been without three key players, but all seem to be progressing well.
General Manager Dave Nonis indicated that goaltender James Reimer should participate in a light on-ice workout either Tuesday or Wednesday and his recovery is going well. Reimer has been out for a week with an MCL strain in his knee. Ben Scrivens has done an excellent job filling in and has shut outs in back-to-back games.
Joffrey Lupul was on the ice Tuesday, but is still a few weeks away from returning to game action. Lupul has been sidelined since January 23rd with a broken forearm after being hit with a point shot from team-mate Dion Phaneuf. Originally Lupul was scheduled to miss 4-6 weeks.
Matt Frattin has missed the last week after undergoing a successful procedure on his knee. Frattin initially hurt the knee last spring during the Calder Cup playoffs and had surgery to repair it in the off-season. He figures to be out at least another 10 days. Frattin has seven goals and 10 points in 10 games this season after being called up from the Toronto Marlies.
