Yet another setback for Leafs D John Klingberg

He's not had a good first year with the Leafs.



While the Toronto Maple Leafs won't be back in action until the day after tomorrow when they take on Connor Bedard and the Chicago Blackhawks, one player who will not be suiting up for them is Swedish defenseman John Klingberg.

The first year Leafs defenseman continues to be hampered by an undisclosed injury that also kept him out of action in both games in Sweden as part of the NHL Global Series. 

"There's no update on him other than to say he's continuing to work through things," Maple Leafs head coach Sheldon Keefe said of Klingberg's status earlier today. "We'll have something for you when something's changed. At this point, there is no change in his status."

He hasn't suited up since November 11 against the Vancouver Canucks. He's in his first season with the Leafs after having split last season with the Anaheim Ducks and the Minnesota Wild after agreeing to come aboard over the summer; before that, he'd spent the first several years of his career with the Dallas Stars.
