Lupul is likely still a week away from returning to the Maple Leafs lineup, but his return to the ice this morning with the team, albeit as an extra, is a good sign for the winger. The Maple Leafs are hampered by injuries, so Lupul return would be immense.
Lupul has missed the last three games after suffering a Grade 2 groin strain last Monday. He is expected to miss two weeks, so he will likely miss the Maple Leafs four games this week but could be back next Wednesday vs. Boston. Monitor his status as the week progresses.
Lupul (groin) will be out two weeks says Leafs head coach Randy Carlyle.
Lupul was injured after playing just 11:57 in Monday's loss to Columbus. The Leafs are about to enter a busy stretch in their schedule, playing eight games in the next two weeks. Lupul has had a hard time staying healthy, so this should come to the surprise of no one.
Lupul has a grade 2 groin strain and will not play on Wednesday.
Leafs head coach Randy Carlyle has ruled Lupul out for tomorrow and said it would be a miracle if he plays on Friday or Saturday. This is the same injury that Jonathan Quick has, but recovery should be faster for a player than a goalie. Quick's recovery time is expected to be near six weeks. Mason Raymond will move up to the second line with Lupul out.
Lupul (groin) did not skate with the Maple Leafs this morning.
According to Leafs head coach Randy Carlyle, Lupul suffered a pulled groin in last night's 6-0 loss to the Blue Jackets. Not practicing this morning puts his availability for tomorrow's contest in question. Monitor his status after Wednesday's morning skate.
Maple Leafs head coach Randy Carlyle said Lupul pulled his groin in tonight's 6-0 loss to the Blue Jackets.
Lupul left the game after played 11:57 and did not return. Lupul has a large history of injuries. He has never played a full 82-game season and has missed a total of 79 games in the last four seasons. There is no word on the severity of the injury yet, expect an update on Tuesday.
Lupul has missed the last two games with a bruised bone in his foot. Randy Carlyle said Lupul was "labouring" in practice yesterday, but he tested the foot in warmup and declared himself fit to play. He is an Edmonton native, so playing in front of his friends and family may have factored into his decision.
Lupul (bruised foot) is a game-time decision tonight in Edmonton.
Lupul is in danger of missing his third consecutive game with a bone bruise in his foot. He was skating gingerly yesterday, which suggests that he might not be ready tonight. Monitor his status prior to the 9 PM EST puck-drop.
Lupul (bruised foot) skated with the Leafs in Edmonton today.
Lupul was reportedly skating very gingerly which puts his availability for tomorrow's game in question. However he was skating with Carter Ashton and Jay McClement which suggests he could be in the lineup. Monitor his status following tomorrow's morning skate.
Maple Leafs' head coach Randy Carlyle says that Joffrey Lupul has a bone bruise is "questionable for tonight".
Lupul missed Friday's contest and is in jeopardy of missing tonight's game with the Penguins. The Maple Leafs struggled against the Blue Jackets so they would like to get Lupul back for a tougher test with Pittsburgh in town. He has six goals and four assists.
