The Toronto Maple Leafs have had an injury filled season.
The Toronto Maple Leafs began the year short-handed, with Zach Hyman and Travis Dermott both missing the first month of the year because of off- season surgeries.
Shortly after that, John Tavares broke a finger and missed several games. Alex Kerfoot had a concussion.
Mitch Marner missed almost a month after injuring his ankle in an early November game against the Flyers.
Andreas Johnsson got hurt (the first time) and missed most of December.
