REPORT: We now know the injury that could be ENDING Jake Muzzin's career - It's BAD!

Published November 14, 2022 at 3:46 PM

Jake Muzzin has only played in 4 games this season, and has not been seen since leaving the game on October 17th against the Arizona Coyotes with an injury. Since he has been out, the Maple Leafs have kept it all hush hush about his injury, but many insiders have speculated it could be career ending.

The only update until today that we had received was that he travelled with the team to Los Angeles to visit a specialist.

Muzzin has had a history of injuries throughout his career, but when he received this most recent injury, it looked like a 'nothing play' when he collided with the Coyotes Clayton Keller. Muzzin was on the ice, struggled to get to his skates and left the game.

Teammates like Mitch Marner have made comments that they are afraid for his career and hoped that this new injury wouldn't affect his day to day life and after hearing from this NHL insider today, we know exactly why Marner thought that.

Today Elliotte Friedman shared:

The Toronto Maple Leafs announced today that defenceman Jake Muzzin is out indefinitely due to a cervical spine injury. Muzzin's status will be re- evaluated in late February. Muzzin skated in four games with the Maple Leafs this season and recorded one assist.

Spinal injuries are very serious and would be completely understandable if he chose to hang up the skates.
