Let’s have that image a little bigger:
As expected, the Maple Leafs are listing both Timothy Liljegren and Pierre Engvall as injured. Mikhail Abramov was absent from Traverse City because of a lingering injury, and Joseph Woll, listed as hurt last spring is still not ready to play.
Timothy Liljegren will be out six weeks minimum following hernia surgery, per Kyle Dubas.— Chris Johnston (@reporterchris) September 21, 2022
That will allow the #leafs to start the season with him on LTIR.
Dubas: Engvall (ankle, out until early Oct.) Liljegren (hernia operation, six weeks) Abramov (back), Woll (shoulder) out for a bit.— Lance Hornby (@sunhornby) September 21, 2022
Marlies players on AHL contracts invited to camp are:
- Joe Blandisi
- Dryden McKay
- Logan Shaw
- Keith Petruzzelli
- Noel Hoefenmayer
- Tommy Miller
- Marshall Rifai
Other PTOs are Dylan Ferguson and Zach Aston-Reese.
Drafted players invited is one man, Fraser Minten, and Graham Slaggert is the only Traverse City ATO player invited.
This is a very, very serious business training camp, light on extra bodies, and heavy on the NHL-contracted players who are competing for very few spots in the LTIR pool for however long that lasts.
