Connor Timmins and the Maple Leafs hit a rough patch. Timmins, who was having an impressive preseason, now faces a potential long-term injury.

According to Coach Sheldon Keefe, Timmins suffered a lower body injury during Friday's game against Montreal. He's scheduled for an MRI to assess the injury's severity. The Leafs are also grappling with an injury to John Klingberg on the right side.


Initially seen as a depth player, Timmins exceeded expectations in the preseason, leading the team with an impressive six points in just two games.



Sheldon Keefe summed it up, saying, "Not just the camp he has had, he has worked incredibly hard...to have a setback is tough news for him and for us."


The exact moment of Timmins' injury remains unclear, and it seemed to have slipped under the radar at the time. Timmins has had his fair share of injuries since entering the league in 2017, including a concussion and knee issues.
