Mikheyev (wrist) was skating on the second line with John Tavares at Monday's camp session, Lance Hornby of The Toronto Sun reports. Prior to getting hurt, Mikheyev racked up eight goals, 15 helpers and 98 shots in 39 appearances this year. Despite being a rookie, the Russian winger seems to have quickly meshed with Tavares, which would make him a top-end fantasy option in both postseason pools and DFS contests during the playoffs.
Mikheyev (wrist) returned to practice Monday, Terry Koshan of the Toronto Sun reports. Mikheyev's return still shouldn't be viewed as imminent, but he's clearly making progress in his recovery and could be ready to rejoin the lineup before postseason play gets underway. The 25-year-old Russian notched 23 points in 39 games before undergoing wrist surgery in late December.
Mikheyev (wrist) is expected to return to practice at some point during the Maple Leafs' upcoming three-game road trip, Mark Masters of TSN.ca reports. Mikheyev has been sidelined for two months since he suffered the severe laceration that damaged tendons in his wrist. This is just the first step in a long recovery for the Russian winger -- he's questionable at best to make a return to game action during the regular season.
Mikheyev (wrist) will "miss more than three months" after undergoing successful surgery to repair an artery and tendons in his wrist. The 25-year-old rookie suffered a severe laceration from a skate in Friday's game against the Devils. Mikheyev's agent released the information Saturday morning and indicated a "more accurate timeline for his return will be provided in 90 days." Tendons take time to heal and then strength needs to be rebuilt, so count Mikheyev out for the season. Poor kid -- he was skating with the big guns on a scoring line and looking like a perfect fit. But thankfully, he is expected to make a full recovery. This could have been career altering. He'll head to IR for the time being.
Mikheyev was cut on his wrist in Friday's game against the Devils, Kristen Shilton of TSN.ca reports. Mikheyev suffered the scary injury when Jesper Bratt's skate blade caught him in the third period. It's unclear how severe Mikheyev's injury is. The Maple Leafs play again Saturday against the Rangers, but given the nature of the injury -- which was described as a significant laceration per the Maple Leafs -- the 25-year-old Russian is likely questionable at best to participate in that contest.
