Toronto Maple Leafs forward James van Riemsdyk took part in the first half of practice Wednesday and his status remains up in the air for the game Thursday against the Carolina Hurricanes.

Maple Leafs coach Randy Carlyle wouldn't rule out the possibility of van Riemsdyk returning to the lineup after he was scratched for the win Tuesday against the Minnesota Wild with an upper-body injury.

"Again, there's improvement but we'll see if he’s available to us for [Thursday] night," Carlyle told reporters. "Hopefully with another 24 hours and a couple treatments he'll be back."

Van Riemsdyk has five goals in six games for the Maple Leafs, who lead the Atlantic Division with six wins in their first seven games.

Quote of the Day

I think everyone left it out there. Every game this season, regular season and playoffs, we played as hard as we could. We're not out of the playoffs right now because of lack of effort, and that's all that we can ask of each other.
