Aleksander Barkov will not be in the lineup when the Florida Panthers play the Toronto Maple Leafs at Scotiabank Arena on Monday.

Kasperi Kapanen will return to the lineup for Toronto after he was a healthy scratch against the Ottawa Senators on Saturday for being late to practice Friday after oversleeping.
Players to watch
Panthers forward Mike Hoffman had a 10-game point streak (five goals, eight assists) end against the Canadiens.
Maple Leafs forward William Nylander has nine points (five goals, four assists) during a seven-game point streak.
They said it
"We want to make sure we're ready to play. Last game was a tough game to begin the post All-Star break and we're going to have to be ready in all facets tonight through the middle of the ice, with the puck, and we know they're dangerous in the zone as well but we don't want to give them anything unnecessary. We want to make them work for what they get." -- Panthers coach Joel Quenneville
"I don't think this needs to be made a bigger deal than it needs to be, especially in this case where it was very innocent. It just gets to the point where you have to respond for the sake of the player. This is not a punishment or anything like that, it's just about trying to reset the player and help him grow and get better. We want him to be the player he's capable of being." -- Maple Leafs coach Sheldon Keefe on Kasperi Kapanen
