Lupul (lower-body) has been activated from IR and will play on Thursday.
Lupul has not played since December 31st, but will return to the lineup tonight vs. the Coyotes. The Maple Leafs offence has been a disaster as of late, but Lupul should provide a much needed spark tonight. He has 17 points (9G / 8A) in 26 games this season.
Lupul (upper-body) practiced on Tuesday; questionable for Wednesday.
Lupul was on the ice again on Tuesday, but only skated on the Maple Leafs fourth line, which is a sign that he will not play tomorrow vs. the Devils. Monitor his status during the Maple Leafs game day skate tomorrow morning.
The Maple Leafs have placed Joffrey Lupul (lower-body) on injured reserve.
Lupul suffered a lower-body injury in the Maple Leafs win over the Bruins on Wednesday night. There is no word on how long the Leafs expect Lupul to be out for, but he is no stranger to the IR to this point in his career. Expect a more detailed injury report to be released on Friday.
The Maple Leafs have moved Joffrey Lupul to the top-line.
Coming off of their first loss since December 4th, the Maple Leafs shuffled their lines at Friday’s practice. Lupul skated with Tyler Bozak and Phil Kessel while Daniel Winnik was dropped to the third line and James van Riemsdyk to the second line with Nazem Kadri. Lupul has recorded just one goal in his last five games, so this is an attempt to get him going again.
Lupul (hand) will return to the Maple Leafs lineup on Wednesday.
Lupul missed the last 12 games with a broken hand that he suffered on October 28th. He struggled before the injury, scoring just two goals and one assist in nine games. He has skated on the fourth line with Trevor Smith and David Booth over the last few days, so expect him to start there tomorrow vs. Pittsburgh.
Lupul (hand) not expected to play on Saturday vs. Detroit.
Lupul continued to skate in a no-contact jersey on Friday morning, which suggests that he will not be available on Saturday. Lupul has missed the last 11 games with a broken hand he suffered on October 28th. Monitor his status during Saturday’s game day skate.
Lupul is taking part in his first practice since breaking his hand.
Maple Leafs’ head coach Randy Carlyle said that Lupul should go through two or three practices before returning to the lineup, so don’t expect to see him out there tomorrow, but maybe Saturday vs. the Red Wings. He has been out since October 28th.
Lupul will wear a cast on his injured hand for a minimum of 10 days before he can put a glove back on it and get some mobility back, according to coach Carlyle, who added the winger won't go on the team's upcoming road trip. With Lupul out, the Leafs recalled forward Sam Carrick from the AHL and he made his NHL debut last night.
Lupul is out indefinitely with a broken right hand.
Lupul stepped on a stick at practice and fell on his hand. Lupul was hoping to play on Friday, but an X-ray revealed a break. Leo Komarov will play with Nazem Kadri and Phil Kessel tonight with Lupul out.
After missing Thursday's practice, Lupul was back on the ice this morning and will play vs. the Red Wings tonight. Lupul has two goals and one assist in four games this season. Lupul being active means Brandon Kozun goes back to the fourth line.
