During a recent Leafs practice, Noel Acciari was absent, which left fans curious about who would practice with his linemates Zach Aston-Reese and Sam Lafferty. It was revealed that Owen Robinson from the University of Toronto's Men's Hockey Team filled in for Acciari. However, the reason for Acciari's absence is that he is injured.

Acciari is Out Due to an Injury

After the practice, Leafs coach Sheldon Keefe updated reporters on Acciari's status, stating that he is currently listed as day-to-day and will not be playing in the upcoming match against Florida. Due to his absence, the Leafs will be using their 11 forward and 7 defenseman setup that has been heavily criticized, along with all the other experimental lines Keefe has been using.

Keefe did not specify whether Acciari's injury was related to a recent hit he took during a game against Carolina, or if it was due to something else. The nature of his injury, whether it is an upper-body or a lower-body injury, remains unknown at this time.
