BREAKING: THE TORONTO MAPLE LEAFS GET HIT WITH BAD NEWS REGARDING AUSTON MATTHEWS

BY SKY
Auston Matthews will be missing todays (Wednesdays) game against the Nashville Predators due to an injury, and the team isn't allowing any information out on what the injury consists of.



"I'd say he's just day-to-day, obviously he's out there putting in lots of work and all that so he's clearly not too far away. He's improving daily so we'll see where he's at for tomorrow,» Leafs coach Sheldon Keefe said, adding the injury is something that's been «lingering for a while.»


This is definitely a concern for the fan base as well as the team itself, and Auston Matthews. ''Lingering for a while'' is never a good sign, but we hope he can take the time off he needs to make sure his health is good and great.


As sourced from Bladesofsteel.com and many other outlets the Maple Leafs made a roster move due to the injury news of Matthews, Bobby McMann has been recalled and will make his NHL debut.

"Any time you've got a guy playing in his first game, you try not to overwhelm too much. There's enough going on as it is. He's at his best when he's moving his feet and skating. Big, strong guy. He's found a way to really make his mark very quickly at the AHL level,» Keefe said of the 26-year-old McMann.

«He's an older guy coming out of college and all those kinds of things. Doesn't have a great deal of experience at the pro level yet that didn't faze him in adjusting to the AHL. He's now had a camp and some exhibition games with us. The hope is he can make an impact right away, but we'll of course be patient with him. It's a great opportunity for a player like him that has really stayed with it, worked incredibly hard, been a valuable member of the organization and gets rewarded for it tonight.»
