Sorry for the picture, either Twitter changes, SBN changes or technical failures meant I couldn’t embed this.
The Maple Leafs have recalled Pontus Holmberg and Alex Steeves and have sent Joe Woll to the Marlies.
With Woll off the roster, they have $850,000 in LTIR pool room. So that means someone is on LTIR or two forwards would not be recalled. One other possibility it that with Luke Schenn in Vancouver awaiting the arrival of a new Schenn, he might be designated non-roster.
When we know you will too.
#Leafs practice is underway Ryan O’Reilly is not on the ice. John Tavares is wearing extras grey, Luke Schenn is also not on the ice.

Twitter is fixed so:
At his media availability, TOR head coach Sheldon Keefe says Ryan O’Reilly has a broken finger and will be going on LTIR. (Timeline uncertain as of now.) John Tavares won’t play tomorrow vs NJ as he is a little under the weather.— Elliotte Friedman (@FriedgeHNIC) March 6, 2023
Keefe also confirmed that Schenn stayed back in Vancouver to be with his wife is due in roughly nine days. Figuring out the logistics and what not to get them over and the timing, etc…@BodogCA @RinkWideTOR— David Alter (@dalter) March 6, 2023
Keefe says O'Reilly is seeing a specialist in Toronto this afternoon@TSN_Edge— Mark Masters (@markhmasters) March 6, 2023
So any confident statements of time to return are likely premature.
Minimum for LTIR has to be observed, so at least 24 days from the date of the injury.
