Bogosian (shoulder) was placed on long-term injured reserve Thursday, per CapFriendly. Bogosian was already expected to miss four weeks as of April 23, so this is a procedural move for the Maple Leafs to free up a little more cap space. The 30-year-old defenseman will likely be out to begin the playoffs, but he could return if the Leafs make a deep enough run.
Bogosian will be sidelined for at least four weeks with a shoulder injury, Joshua Kloke of The Athletic Toronto reports. With Bogosian set to be sidelined until late May, the Maple Leafs may need to advance past the first round of the playoffs in order for the veteran blueliner to have a chance to return in 2020-21. Bogosian has only notched four helpers while averaging just 14:32 of ice time per contest through 45 appearances this season.
Bogosian will miss "more than a week" with his upper-body injury, Sportsnet's Chris Johnston reports. Bogosian's absence will test the Maple Leafs' depth at defense, but it will likely go unnoticed in most fantasy circles, as the veteran blueliner has only tallied four points in 45 games this campaign.
Bogosian (upper body) is expected to miss time with the injury he suffered Tuesday versus the Canucks, David Alter of The Hockey News reports. This update from head coach Sheldon Keefe essentially rules out Bogosian for Thursday's game in Winnipeg. It remains to be seen how much additional time Bogosian will miss -- Keefe expects to have an update later in the week on the defenseman's status. Travis Dermott or Martin Marincin could be the leading candidates to fill Bogosian's third-pairing role.
Bogosian (upper body) will not return to Tuesday's game versus the Canucks. Bogosian went hard into the boards during the second period, but he was able to skate off under his own power. He didn't escape the situation without injury, and his absence leaves the Maple Leafs with five defensemen to finish the game. An update on his status should be available before Thursday's game in Winnipeg.
