Dallas Stars vs Toronto Maple Leafs
TORONTO -- Toronto Maple Leafs center Auston Matthews is getting closer to a return from a shoulder injury, but will not play Wednesday night against the Dallas Stars.
Matthews participated in his first full practice Monday since he was injured in a game against the New York Islanders on Feb. 22. He wore a red shirt during the practice, indicating he would not be involved in contact.
"He'll be in better shape when he comes back than when he left," Maple Leafs coach Mike Babcock said. "It will still take him a bit for timing. I would expect he's still going to be pushing, not for Dallas game, but after that some time. As he's feeling better, he'll get involved more."Read More...
