Toronto Maple Leafs
Forwards Zach Hyman and Riley Nash are on the ice for Leafs' practice, with both players sporting red, no-contact sweaters. Head coach Sheldon Keefe says it's unlikely either player will play this week.
This is the first time Hyman has skated at practice after taking a knee-on-knee hit from Vancouver Canucks defenceman Alex Edler on April 18. Hyman was projected to miss a minimum of two weeks with a sprained MCL.
The 28-year-old has 15 goals and 33 points in 43 games this season.
Nash, 31, who was acquired on April 9 from the Blue Jackets for a conditional seventh-round pick in the 2022 NHL Draft, has been skating since April 29.
Nash has yet to suit up for the Leafs due to a knee injury suffered on April 4 playing against the Florida Panthers.
In 37 games this season, he has two goals and five assists.
Nick Foligno was absent from Wednesday's practice. He left Monday's game against the Montreal Canadiens late in the second period with an upper-body injury and didn't return. He is considered day-to-day and will not play Thursday.
He has four assists in five games since being acquired from the Columbus Blue Jackets at the trade deadline.
Defenceman Justin Holl is also back at practice with a full face shield.
