Leafs' Matthews misses practice, to be re-evaluated before Wednesday's game
Toronto centre played through 'general soreness' on Monday, recording an assist
Toronto Maple Leafs star centre Auston Matthews sat out Tuesday's practice as he continues to recover from what the team calls "general soreness."
Matthews was a game-time decision before Toronto's game against visiting Vegas on Monday night. He played and had an assist in more than 21 minutes of ice time in a 4-3 shootout win.
Toronto coach Mike Babcock told reporters that Matthews would be re-evaluated before Toronto's game against Minnesota on Wednesday.
Matthews has 10 goals and nine assists in 16 games this season.
