Maple Leafs Head Coach Provides Crucial Update On Calle Jarnkrok's Injury

Published March 15, 2024 at 10:57

The Toronto Maple Leafs faced another setback last night as Calle Jarnkrok left the game early due to an awkward collision with the boards.

«Calle Jarnkrok goes shoulder-first into the board,»

Jarnkrok exited the game after colliding shoulder-first with the boards while battling for a loose puck with a Flyers defenseman.

Head coach Sheldon Keefe provided an update on Jarnkrok's status post-game, mentioning that he'll "miss some time" due to the collision. However, Keefe couldn't provide a specific timeline for Jarnkrok's return as they are awaiting further evaluation once the team returns to Toronto.

«Sheldon Keefe says Calle Jarnkrok is probably going to miss some time and they won't know the full extent of it until they get home.

Ruled out the shoulder and head as injuries. Didn't say anything else.»

This indicates that Jarnkrok might not be sidelined for an extended period, potentially returning before the playoffs.
Keefe emphasized the need for other players to step up in Jarnkrok's absence, similar to how the team rallied in the absence of Mitch Marner.

«Sheldon Keefe said it's not a shoulder or head injury for Calle Jarnkrok:

"Just like we've had others step up for Mitch, we'll have to do similar with Jarny if he's going to miss a period of time here"
