Scoring help on the way for Leafs as Lupul says he's ready to return

TORONTO - Toronto forward Joffrey Lupul says he expects to return to action when the Maple Leafs host the Winnipeg Jets on Saturday.

Lupul went through a full practice with his teammates on Friday and has been cleared for contact by the team.

He suffered a fractured forearm in Toronto's 5-2 win in Pittsburgh on Jan. 23.

Lupul is coming off his best offensive season, putting up 67 points in 66 games with the Leafs in 2011-12.

Toronto can use his scoring touch, as the eighth-place Jets can pass the Leafs in the Eastern Conference standings with a win.

Quote of the Day

I came into a team that had 65 points, that was at the bottom of the basement, a team that everybody wrote off as never going to be good. My goal is to go from the very bottom to the very top.
