Heading into tonight's game against the St. Louis Blues. The Toronto Maple Leafs will be without Morgan Rielly. Rielly will begin to serve his multiple game suspension for his cross check on Ottawa Senators, Ridley Greig. Rielly's absence leaves a large hole In the Leafs lineup.

Unfortunately for the Leafs that hole just got exponentially deeper. The Leafs public relations account just announced on X that the team will be without both. John Tavares and Mitch Marner for tonight's game due to illness.

The @MapleLeafs have recalled G Dennis Hildeby and F Alex Steeves from the @TorontoMarlies on an emergency basis.

D Max Lajoie has been loaned to the Marlies.


F Mitch Marner and F John Tavares will not be available tonight due to illness.


Earlier today the team also announced that defender Conor Timmins would be out of the lineup after contracting mono. Tonight's game will certainly test the team's depth as they face a St. Louis team fighting for their playoff lives.

If the Maple Leafs want to make the playoffs they will need to find a way to overcome this adversity, but given their recent history, it's hard to imagine that betting on them is a good decision.
