Just days after getting William Nylander back from COVID Protocol, the Toronto Maple Leafs are thinking about sidelining the talented winger again.
Nylander wore a grey extras sweater during Monday’s practice at Rogers Arena in Vancouver after reporting late for a team meeting. Now the Leafs are leaning towards holding him out of Tuesday’s game against the Canucks for disciplinary reasons.
“It was a simple [situation] with Will,” said head coach Sheldon Keefe. “It’s just that he was late for a meeting here this morning and his status was that he wasn’t going to play tomorrow, and so we had him on the outside here today for practice and we’re going to discuss it and reassess it for tomorrow night’s game.
