Toronto Maple Leafs defenceman Jake Muzzin skated for the first time on Sunday since suffering a scary injury near the end of Tuesday's Game 2 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets.
Head coach Sheldon Keefe said it was the first time he left his hotel room since getting back from the hospital.
“Great to see him around our team," said Keefe.
The 31-year-old fell awkwardly behind the net after a push from Blue Jackets' forward Pierre-Luc Dubois. During the fall, his head landed awkwardly on the back of Oliver Bjorkstrand.
Through the first two games of the play-in series, Muzzin was averaging 18:48 of ice time with no points. He had six goals and 23 points in 53 games during the regular season while averaging 21:36 of ice time per game.
