NHL Insider Provides Update On Klingberg's Injury Status
NHL insider Chris Johnston reported today that Klingberg's future may be in serious jeopardy. This is most likely due to the reoccurring injury the defenseman mentioned that has kept him out of the Leafs lineup recently.
Leafs head coach Sheldon Keefe seemed to share Johnston's concern over the weekend when he confirmed that the blueliner would not play in Sunday's game. At the very least, he seemed to suggest that Klingberg could easily be out long-term.
Toronto Maple Leafs To Share Klingberg's Prognosis Next Week
Elliotte Friedman reported this morning on the 32 thoughts podcast that we may get a more clear picture of Klingberg's future as early as this week.
Klingberg has played in 633 NHL games with four different teams, primarily the Dallas Stars. He has 81 goals and 412 points in those games. This season he has 5 assists in 14 games with the Leafs. He last played on November 11th.
