William Nylander just got back into the lineup after being on the quarantine list and now he might be coming right back out of the lineup.
Nylander had 1 goal and 1 assist against the Vancouver Canucks while playing 21 minutes, however it sounds like he'll watch the Leafs game against the Canucks tomorrow from the press box.
Eye brows were raised today when Nylander hit the ice in a grey jersey which is usually reserved for taxi squad guys.
After practice head coach Sheldon Keefe gave the explanation.
Nylander was late for a team meeting today and Keefe wasn't happy at all.
The forward's punishment will likely carry over to tomorrow as Keefe is leaning towards making Nylander a healthy scratch.
More details to come.
Sheldon Keefe said William Nylander was late for a meeting today, hence the taxi squad grey. Wasn't going to play tomorrow because of it; that will be reassessed ahead of the game.
