Does that mean Liljegren is out of the tournament?

Dubas talked about Johnsson potentially returning later in the playoffs so I'd imagine players on the IR (assuming thats whats up with Lily) can still play when cleared.

Jonas Siegel reported that Liljegren was at the Leafs' practice facility yesterday and was seen speaking to the teams head athletic therapist (both wearing masks). That possibly suggests whatever made him "unfit to participate" is something that wouldn't necessitate him to say quarantine away from everyone else.

Yeeachh...another hole on the right side.  I was looking forward to watching him play, so I hope it's nothing serious.

I would imagine he was at best 8th on the Leafs depth chart right now with Sandin ahead of him, maybe even Mari--- nevermind let's just say 8th.

But again we really have no idea what the deal is with him, and because of the leagues secrecy regarding any injuries we might not get any more information. But it's entirely possible he's back in 2 weeks when games start, although granted missing this camp would make things tougher for him to get up to the speed the other guys are at.

Don't.  Don't you dare.

Liljegren remains on-site to observe practice.

and this is something he's watching:
(while Marner is getting PK reps)

I see they’re finally using my idea of double PP shifting Matthews as a semi-stationary turret (Ovechkin-style)... Willy stayed out there too

That really simulates normal game play.  Super surprised he scored there.

Would the NHL have cleaner games and higher scores if they did 'free throws*' for the hockey-equivalent of technical fouls on top of the 2 min-5min PP (e.g. instigator, checking from behind, slewfoot, headshot)?

* stationary shot from the slot between the dots by player of team's choosing (on the ice).

Mikheyev stayed in Toronto to rehab, even after the pause kicked in.

On every penalty, the team about to go a man up gets to choose between a penalty shot or a full two minute 5 on 4 regardless of how many goals they score.

Tell me that doesn't make for a better game.
