The Toronto Maple Leafs are starting their California road trip tonight against the LA Kings, who look to get their first win under new coach. The Leafs called up Trevor Moore to join the team, but he won’t get into tonight’s game.
While you’re waiting for the game to start, get caught up on the day’s news:
Read Arvind’s piece looking into who on the Leafs are taking the most shots.
Read Katya’s piece on the announcement that the Leafs will be participating in the big boy Rookie Tournament next year.
Jakob Chychrun got a long term extension today (details below), which is a nice way to soothe the pain of his father being killed (stealing Arvind’s joke).

Tom Wilson’s suspension was reduced to 14 games, though he’s already missed more than that. Chris Johnston has some details on the reasoning behind the ruling:
In making his ruling on the Tom Wilson case, arbitrator Shyam Das took issue with George Parros' decision to use a 3x multiplier for repeat offences. He reduced it to 2x.— Chris Johnston (@reporterchris) November 13, 2018
So Das took the length of Wilson's most recent suspension (3 games) and doubled it because it occurred in the playoffs (6). He then doubled it again for Wilson's repeat offences (12) and followed Parros' lead by adding two games for Oskar Sundqvist's injuries (14).— Chris Johnston (@reporterchris) November 13, 2018
