TORONTO - James van Riemsdyk missed the Maple Leafs' game against the Wild with an undisclosed injury.
Toronto coach Randy Carlyle called Van Riemsdyk a "question mark" after Tuesday's morning skate. The forward, who did not practice Monday because of what the team called a maintenance day, left the skate early.
Van Riemsdyk has three goals in his past two games and five in the Leafs' first six games this season.
It's really exciting. I'm pretty sure that when I play my first game I'm going to be emotional. To be back on the ice playing a game, being in game situations, with all the routines and rituals I do before games and during the game, I feel like I'm going to be emotional. I'm going to be really happy.
