The Leafs hit the ice at MasterCard Centre on Wednesday as they get set to host the Carolina Hurricanes Thursday. James van Riemsdyk skated for 40 minutes before leaving practice as he continues to deal with an upper body injury.
Head coach Randy Carlyle said that there has been progress with van Riemsdyk and hopefully with more treatment over the next 24 hours that he could be in action against the Hurricanes but that won’t be known until after the game day skate.
van Riemsdyk has five goals and six points in six games this season with a plus three rating.
