Lupul’s injury occurred after being hit with a shot from captain Dion Phaneuf, leaving the ice at 9:02 of the second period.
Rob Longley of the Toronto Sun caught up with the Leafs captain, who said: “It’s a big loss for our team. He's huge for us up front."
Because the Hockey Gods are cruel and unyielding, the injury occurs days after Lupul signed a 5-year, $26.25-million extension with the Leafs.
Key words: When healthy. Be it due to illness or injury, Lupul's seemingly been out more than he's been in during this career.
The Leafs just saw 25 goals and 67 points leave their lineup indefinitely. Now, what does that mean for Kessel in his absence?
