James van Riemsdyk returns to Leafs practice today.
JVR bruised his foot blocking a shot on Tuesday, but looks like he'll be ready for Saturday. JVR has tremendous upside and will have the best opportunity of his young career. As long as he stays healthy a career is certainly possible.
JVR said after the game that he’d find out Friday how long he’ll be out, but early speculation was 4-to-6 weeks. Earlier this season, Flyers rookie Brayden Schenn was sidelined almost a month with a broken foot.
Van Riemsdyk could miss the rest of the regular season due to his broken foot. The power forward has been limited to only 43 games this season due to various injuries.
