Maple Leafs’ Liljegren back on the ice after head injury

Timothy Liljegren was back on the ice at practice on Friday.
The Toronto Maple Leafs defenceman suffered a head injury in the first period when he whiffed on a shot and lost his balance as he barreled into Anaheim Ducks forward Trevor Zegras at 14:26 of the first period.
Head coach Sheldon Keefe confirmed Liljegren’s head injury shortly after the Maple Leafs defeated the Anaheim Ducks 4-3 in a shootout and that he was kept out for the remainder of the game for precautionary reasons.
“There were some positive signs as the game wore on and after the game. They (medical staff) were feeling a bit better about him,” Keefe said after the game.
The Maple Leafs played the remainder of Wednesday’s game with five defencemen.
Liljegren’s status for Saturday’s game should be clearer after Friday’s practice. He has one goal and five points in 24 games this season.
