Mitch Marner out for a minimum of 4 weeks with ankle injury

Tavares and the Maple Leafs made a decision to reach out to Kade and gave him the chance to meet his heroes on Saturday ahead of Toronto's game against the Philadelphia Flyers. Dermott scored midway through the second, and Nylander tied it early in the third.

"Your friends from the Maple Leafs have a surprise gift coming your way!" "They got the second point and we didn't".

The Leafs then arranged to have Kade and his family come to Toronto from their home in Newfoundland.

Although Chicago is significantly weaker than Toronto, the games between these two teams always seem to be exciting. Leafs winger Andreas Johnsson played the 100th game of his National Hockey League career.

While on the verge of having the full complement of forwards back, finally, the Leafs may have suffered their most critical injury yet.

Just under one week after a tweet went viral discussing how no one showed up to Toronto Maple Leafs fan Kade Foster's birthday party, the 11-year-old is spending Saturday with his favourite team.

Marner did try to test it out, which may rule out the most serious of potential injuries, but there is definite concern that he could miss some significant time.

Many Maple Leafs players, including John Tavares, Mitch Marner, and Morgan Rielly, responded to wish Foster a happy birthday. Jason Spezza, who was a healthy scratch against the Flyers, is the only available forward on the roster.

It seems critical that the Maple Leafs receive some contributions from the Tavares line at 5-on-5, or risk continuing to chase games as they have over the last four.
