Toronto Maple Leafs Give Update on Murray's Injury

The Toronto Maple Leafs are facing some early season adversity as goaltender Matt Murray went down at practice and suffered an abductor injury which is likely going to keep him out of the lineup for four-to-six weeks.

Murray was off to a so-so start to the regular season after shining bright in his preseason actions. He was in line to play against his former team on Saturday night, however Ilya Samsonov stepped in and is now 2-0 to start the season in Toronto.

The only good news for Toronto about the Murray injury, is the fact they can move him to LTIR and use some newfound cap space. The entered the 2022-23 season with only $4.00 under the salary cap, which made them have to send down forward Nick Robertson, who was their best player in the preseason. Turns out Robertson is likely on the way next week from the AHL's Toronto Marlies. Leafs Nation can also expect to see the team try and land some more depth on defense, while also trading Wayne Simmonds in the coming days.
