Critical health update on Leafs D Timothy Liljegren

He's been out since early last month.



Boston Bruins captain Brad Marchand remained as defiant as ever when it comes to his take on his dangerous trip on Leafs defenseman Timothy Liljegren on November 2, which landed the latter on long term injured reserve with a high ankle sprain.

Leafs head coach Sheldon Keefe would blast his players after that particular game for their lack of response in defending their teammate - but according to Marchand, there was nothing to respond to because he felt it was a clean play, despite the vocal disagreements of just about everyone else. 

It's now been exactly 31 days since that incident took place, and the good news for the Leafs is that Liljegren is back skating at the team practice facility. 

In the 10 games that he played in this season before the injury, Liljegren recorded a single assist.
