Found November 18, 2011 on
from Ryan Wolstat of the Toronto Sun, (James) Reimer, out since suffering a head injury Oct. 22, against Montreal, last practised on Oct. 26 in Manhattan.
Toronto’ starting goalie, 4-0-1 on the season, was on the ice for about 15 minutes, taking shots from assistant coaches.
Head coach Ron Wilson cautioned Reimer’s conditioning has fallen behind due to his absence and he is still at least 10 days away from returning to action.
The team’s most recently sidelined skaters will miss more than that.
Wilson said defenceman Mike Komisarek and forward Matthew Lombardi will both miss at least three weeks due to undisclosed upper body injuries. Lombardi appeared to suffer a shoulder injury in Thursday’s 4-1 loss to Nashville.
Colby Armstrong remains out long-term, while Mikhail Grabovski is a couple of weeks away from game action.

Maple Leafs defenseman Mike Komisarek will be out at least eight weeks because he needs surgery for a broken arm.
Komisarek suffered the injury in Nashville on Thursday.

With four points on the night, Joffrey Lupul helped prevent the Toronto Maple Leafs' losing streak reach from reaching four games, as the Blue and White blew out the Washington Capitals 7-1 at the Air Canada Centre on Saturday.
Lupul registered a goal and three assists to earn first star of the game honours. The Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta native now has 24 points this season...
So someone asked Wayne Gretzky if he'd like to be part of a massive conglomerate of 1-Percenters trying to buy the Toronto Maple Leafs (and the rest of the MLSE empire.) We can only imagine how this news has affected your daily routine, from nutrition to bathroom habits to potential sleep deprivation from over-exuberance.
Or, perhaps, this is your classic Centre of the Hockey...
A little new from practice....TSN's Darren Dreger reports that goaltender James Reimer is on the ice this morning for a short skate. He has not been symptomatic recently and "improvements have allowed the Leafs to push his exertion a notch." Will update with any news on the injury status of Komisarek, Lombardi, et al.
With a depleted lineup and a shaky situation in net, the Toronto Maple Leafs have become more reliant on Phil Kessel.
Joffrey Lupul is certainly stepping up as well.
Lupul and the Maple Leafs will visit the struggling Carolina Hurricanes on Sunday, going for their third straight win in the series.

NASHVILLE (Nov. 17) - As a reporter that has occasionally risen above the subject-matter of his own story, I can empathize with Dave Feschuk of the Toronto Star. What began as a fairly innocuous, multi-intentioned phone call to Manitoba last week has blossomed into a saga involving Canada's largest newspaper; the Toronto Maple Leafs; the filtering of information, and the varied...
