FTB: Ondřej Kaše not injured, Adam Brooks claimed on waivers by Vegas

And checking in on a very identifiable Canucks fan.

Nashville Predators v Toronto Maple Leafs
TORONTO, ON - NOVEMBER 16: David Kampf #64 of the Toronto Maple Leafs celebrates his goal with teammates Ondrej Kase #25, Jake Muzzin #8, and Alexander Kerfoot against the Nashville Predators during the third period at the Scotiabank Arena on November 16, 2021 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. If this isn’t true love, I don’t know what is.

Ondřej Kaše missed yesterday’s practice after getting x-rays done on his foot after blocking a shot in Tuesday’s 3-0 win over the Nashville Predators. The talented, tenacious, but often-injured right winger should be good to go for Thursday, adding more proof to the fact that “injury prone” players don’t really exist. Players like Kaše throw their bodies around to make plays, and I’m sure that’s hard on the body, but it doesn’t mean their body itself is more fragile than anyone else’s. Hopefully Kaše is 100% for the next game because he’s a really important part of the group.

In sort-of Leafs news, the Montreal Canadiens have lost centre Adam Brooks (yay!) to the Vegas Golden Knights (boo!) through waivers. The Golden Knights have priority in the waivers process because they are currently lower in the standings. As the Golden Knights get healthy, there might be a chance to get Brooks back, but the Habs would have first priority and would now be able to send him to the Laval Rocket.

Speaking of the Rocket, the Leafs blew a 5-1 lead to them last night, losing 6-5 in a shootout. Species has more on the loss and the worrying trend of performances from the past few years in an article coming soon.

I’ll just throw my tweet from last night in for reference of what I’m talking about.

This is a game report on Topi Niemelä from Dobber Prospect’s Eeti Siltanen. Definitely worth a browse.

How David Kämpf’s defence is helping push the Leafs up the standings | by: Sportsnet

On one hand, getting the Oilers more power plays right now won’t exactly be fun for the rest of us, but on the other hand maybe this can help get Mitch Marner some more high-sticking calls?

Well this was awkward!

I’m sure the Crunch, who were the road team, were saying this as they left the ice.

So things are going well a few time zones over...

And la pièce de résistance.
