Mark Giordano faced an unfortunate setback last night during the game against the Florida Panthers.

"#Leafs announce that Mark Giordano will not return due to an upper-body injury."


In a recent press conference, Leafs head coach Sheldon Keefe shared an update on Giordano's health, revealing the extent of the injury.


"Sheldon Keefe confirms a hand injury for Mark Giordano. He's still being evaluated but will miss tomorrow's game, and beyond that, we don't know the extent of it."


Giordano's absence is expected to be prolonged, with Keefe acknowledging,
"Mark Giordano will be out for a significant amount of time. As good as Benoit and Lagesson have been for the Maple Leafs, I think it's time for Treliving to pull the trigger and acquire Nikita Zadorov and Chris Tanev immediately."


Regarding the timeline for Giordano's return, Keefe stated,
"Sheldon Keefe says Mark Giordano's hand injury is still being evaluated to determine the timeline."


In response to Giordano's absence, William Lagesson is set to step in for Thursday's game against The Seattle Karkens. The Leafs face the challenge of adjusting their lineup in the wake of Giordano's injury, and how they navigate this period will be crucial in maintaining their performance on the ice.
