Ilya Mikheyev is out with a hand injury
Kristen Shilton: Toronto Maple Leafs coach Sheldon Keefe stated the hand injury that Ilya Mikheyev suffered last night is likely a long-lasting thing. He’ll be examined today.
David Alter: The last lineup choices for the Maple Leafs are income cap associated and will now alter with Mikheyev’s injury scenario.
Earl Schwartz: (thread) If/when the Leafs put Mikheyev on the LTIR, this is what they might do.
“Assemble a 23 guy lineup than consists of Mikheyev, Brooks, Liljegren, Sandin.
That would position them within $136,884 of the cap when Mikheyev is put on LTIR the last day of training school.
The advantages of this path is consisting of Liljegren’s $400k PB in the preliminary lineup, and not needing to waive Adam Brooks.
The option would be to waive Brooks and send out Sandin down, in order to get ~$25k closer to the cap and location Mikheyev on LTIR the first day of the season.”
