Timothy Liljegren leaks William Nylander's health status

Published April 20, 2024 at 1:40 PM

The Toronto Maple Leafs have been holding their cards close when it comes to William Nylander's health, however, Timothy Liljegren leaked his status today during an interview.

No one has been talking about the Leafs expected lineup, even when Sheldon Keefe was asked about the status of William Nylander as he missed practice yesterday. Now, it appears Timothy Liljegren has slipped up and revealed that Nylander will miss some time, as he hopes that he 'doesn't miss too much'.

Liljegren on Nylander: Hard to replace Willy, obviously, but we've had guys step up when guys go down all year so it will be no different this time

How's William holding up?

Liljegren: Obviously tough for him, but hopefully he won't miss too much

Nylander is one of the best Leafs' playoff performers over the past 3-4 years, as he consistently produces when it matters. Having him out of the lineup, though not official, would prove detrimental to the team.

We will see what happens as more details are released.
