He joins a Leafs team nursing several injuries. Forwards Colby Armstrong (concussion) and Philippe Dupuis (upper body) are the most recent players to be sidelined.

Toronto hosts Buffalo on Thursday and visits the Islanders on Friday.

Quote of the Day

I loved being in the jerseys again and they worked some magic for us. It was weird in warm-ups, seeing No. 22 in that jersey and thinking he’s [Mike Gartner], and No. 8 reminds you of Danny Briere … every number had me thinking back to the guys who wore them and smiling.
