Leafs' John Klingberg To Have Hip Surgery

Dec 7, 2023 2:26 PM

Toronto Maple Leafs defenseman John Klingberg will have hip surgery at the end of month and miss the remainder of the season, general manager Brad Treliving announced Wednesday.

"I'll have a better idea as we finalize what is going to get done and ultimately once they do the procedure of how long rehab is going to be, but it's safe to say a five- to six-month range," Treliving said.

Blackhawks Feel Corey Perry 'Neutralized' Leafs' Ryan Reaves

Oct 20, 2023 3:20 PM

Chicago Blackhawks coach Luke Richardson said Thursday that winger Corey Perry successfully "neutralized" Toronto Maple Leafs enforcer Ryan Reaves during their game this week, one day after Reaves questioned Perry's toughness.

The Blackhawks defeated the Maple Leafs 4-1 on Monday, with Perry scoring the eventual winning goal in the second period. Reaves and Perry sparked a scrum in the first period, though neither player was penalized. Later, cameras caught the two jawing at each other at the benches.

Asked about Perry on Wednesday, Reaves said he hasn't liked the 19-year NHL veteran since the day he met him on the ice.

The Vancouver Canucks obtained forward Sam Lafferty from the Toronto Maple Leafs on Sunday for a 2024 fifth-round pick.

Lafferty, 28, can be an unrestricted free agent after this season.

"As we work towards becoming a tougher team to play against, Sam will add some grit and sandpaper to our lineup," Canucks general manager Patrik Allvin said in a statement. "We also like the way he skates and can back players off with his speed. He is a good addition to our forward group and has shown he can also use his speed effectively in a penalty-killing role."
