Injured Jonathan Bernier a no-show at Leafs' practice
Goalie exited Thursday pre-season game after 1st period
The Toronto Maple Leafs were back on the ice at their practice facility, the MasterCard Centre in Etobicoke, Ont., following a 3-2 victory over the Ottawa Senators Thursday night, but goaltender Jonathan Bernier was absent.
Bernier, who was acquired from the Los Angeles Kings this summer and is expected to be the Maple Leafs starter this season, left the game after one period with an undisclosed injury and was replaced by Drew MacIntyre.
Centre Nazem Kadri’s night was also cut short because of a hand injury, but he was on the ice Friday morning.
Also Friday, defenceman Kevin Marshall and forward Spencer Abbott were assigned to the Toronto Marlies. Marshall has to clear waivers before joining the Leafs' American Hockey League affiliate.
