Maple Leafs coach Randy Carlyle informed the media in Toronto about Lupul's status Friday, but said he wasn't sure if he would insert him into the lineup against the Jets.
Lupul suffered the injury in Toronto's third game of the season against the Pittsburgh Penguins. He was standing in front of the net when defenseman Dion Phaneuf hammered a shot that hit Lupul directly in the arm.
Lupul had a career-high 67 points in 66 games last season, and his return could be a big boost for the struggling Maple Leafs, who have lost four straight.
I have been blessed to play for 16 years in the NHL; it has been an amazing ride. I would like to thank the Tampa Bay Lightning and New York Rangers organizations and owners for providing me the opportunity to play the sport I love for so many years. I could have never played for so long or accomplished all that I have without the unwavering love and support from my wife, Heather, our three sons, Ryan, Lucas, and Mason, and my parents.
