When asked about his injury Wednesday, Muzzin said "Kind of a freak play and accident. All things are looking towards a full, healthy recovery," Kristen Shilton of TSN.ca reports.
Muzzin suffered an undisclosed injury when he fell awkwardly and hit his head on Columbus' Oliver Bjorkstrand's knee during Game 2 of Toronto's qualifying-round matchup and subsequently missed the rest of the series, but it sounds like he should be good to go whenever next season gets underway. The 31-year-old blueliner notched 23 points in 53 games during the regular season in 2019-20.
Muzzin (undisclosed) resumed skating Sunday, Mark Masters of TSN.ca reports.
Muzzin won't be available for Sunday's Game 5, but if the Maple Leafs are able to advance, he should be ready for Game 1 of Toronto's first-round series. The 31-year-old blueliner registered three shots on goal and five blocked shots through the first two games of the Leafs' qualifying-round series before suffering a scary upper-body injury near the end of Game 2.
Muzzin (undisclosed) will not be an option for the Maple Leafs for the rest of the team's best-of-five series versus Columbus.
Muzzin has been discharged from the hospital and will remain in quarantine with the team within the bubble. If the club can get past the Jackets, there is a chance Muzzin will be able to resume playing. In the meantime, Martin Marincin figures to jump into the lineup while Morgan Rielly and Travis Dermott could see significant upticks in ice time.
Muzzin (undisclosed) needed to be stretchered off the ice in the third period of Tuesday's game against Columbus, James Mirtle of The Athletic reports.
Muzzin was tangled with a Blue Jackets player in his own zone when he collided awkwardly with his head jamming into an opponent's knee. The stretcher was called out for the defenseman, but the good news was that he was able to move his extremities on the way off the ice. The defenseman was taken to the hospital following the game. Muzzin departed having played 17:06 in the game and recorded three blocked shots.
Muzzin (hand) will be available once play resumes, telling reporters he "should be ready to go when called upon," Kristen Shilton of TSN.ca reports.
Muzzin missed six games due to his hand problem prior to the league going on hiatus. Additionally, the blueliner was sidelined for 10 outings with a foot injury in early January. With the significant time lost to injury, the Ontario native has thus far posted his lowest point total (23) since the 2012-13 campaign when he was with Los Angeles. If the NHL gets back onto the ice, Muzzin figures to return to being a 20-plus-minute skater and could provide solid fantasy value in DFS formats.
Muzzin is expected to be sidelined for four weeks with the broken hand he suffered during Tuesday's win over Tampa Bay.
This is a huge blow to the Maple Leafs, who will now be without two of their top defensemen in Muzzin and Morgan Rielly (foot) as they continue to battle for a playoff spot over the next four weeks. Calle Rosen and Martin Marincin will compete for playing time until Rielly or Muzzin, who's undoubtedly headed for injured reserve, is ready to return.
Muzzin will have tests -- possibly an X-ray -- on his hand to determine the severity of the injury suffered in Tuesday's win over Tampa Bay, Mike Zeisberger of NHL.com reports.
Muzzin blocked Victor Hedman's shot and left the game immediately, but not before scoring his sixth goal of the season. Head coach Sheldon Keefe relayed that he will have a further update on Muzzin's condition Wednesday.
Muzzin won't return to Tuesday's game against the Lightning after suffering a hand injury.
Muzzin left Tuesday's game after blocking a shot from Victor Hedman and won't return. The blueliner produced a goal on four shots across 15:39 of ice time before exiting. The severity of this injury isn't clear, but there should be an update following the game. If Muzzin -- who signed a four-year, $22.5 million extension Monday -- misses substantial time, it'll be a major hit to the Maple Leafs' playoff chances.
Muzzin inked a four-year, $22.5 million contract extension with Toronto on Monday.
Muzzin is riding a five-game point streak during which he has tallied two goals and five helpers. The blueliner should continue racking up points down the stretch and should be capable of getting back over the 30-point mark for the third straight year.
Muzzin had a goal and two assists in Thursday's 4-0 win over Pittsburgh.
Muzzin is riding a four-game, six-point scoring streak (two goals, four assists). His game is just what the Leafs need and it looks like they may have locked him up. The Leafs appear to have agreed to terms on a four-year extension worth just over $5.5 million per year with Muzzin, reports TSN.ca, though there is no confirmation of the extension yet. Muzzin has five goals and 16 assists in 51 games this season.
Muzzin recorded an assist, four PIM, three blocked shots and two hits in Sunday's 5-2 loss to the Sabres.
Muzzin set up Zach Hyman's tying goal at 2:11 of the third period, but that would be it for the Maple Leafs' offense. The veteran defenseman posted two points and 11 blocked shots over two weekend games. For the year, Muzzin is at 17 points, 105 hits, 97 blocks, 88 shots and 40 PIM in 49 appearances.
The Maple Leafs recalled Muzzin (foot) from his conditioning stint with AHL Toronto on Saturday.
Muzzin hasn't appeared in a game for the Leafs in nearly a month due to a broken foot, but he should be good to go when Toronto returns to action Monday against Nashville. The former King has notched three goals and 13 points while posting a plus-8 rating in 38 games this campaign.
Muzzin was reassigned to AHL Toronto on Thursday in the hopes of him returning after the All-Star break, Sportsnets' Chris Johnston reports.
Muzzin has been out of the lineup since Dec. 27 versus New Jersey, a stretch of 10 games. Prior to getting hurt, the blueliner was bogged down in a 14-game pointless streak and was goalless in his last 25 outings. Given his limited offensive upside since leaving Los Angeles, fantasy owners likely won't notice Muzzin's return, though Leafs' fans should be encouraged that he is getting close.
Muzzin (foot) skated Wednesday but won't be ready until after the All-Star break, Lance Hornby of The Toronto Sun reports.
Muzzin's still on the mend from a fractured foot he sustained in December, and the Maple Leafs could use him badly since left-handed blueliner Morgan Rielly (foot) is out for the next eight weeks, at least. For now, Travis Dermott is working on the top pairing alongside Justin Holl. Muzzin posted 13 points, 69 shots on net and 69 blocked shots over 38 games before his injury.
Muzzin (foot) was placed on injured reserve Sunday.
This is simply a paper move for the Maple Leafs as Muzzin hasn't played since Dec. 27 and Andreas Johnsson (leg) was activated from injured reserve this week. The 30-year-old defenseman still hasn't returned to practice, so the timeline for his return remains unclear.
Muzzin is considered week-to-week after suffering a broken foot in the first period of Toronto's 5-4 overtime win over the Devils on Friday, Kristen Shilton of TSN.ca reports.
Muzzin was able to finish the game but won't be seeing the ice anytime soon. In a corresponding move, the Maple Leafs recalled Timothy Liljegren from AHL Toronto on Saturday. As for Muzzin, the team has not committed to a specific timeline and instead is deeming the defenseman "week-to-week", meaning Muzzin likely won't return until mid-January, at the earliest.
Muzzin's scoring drought now stands at 11 games.
Muzzin is not being counted on to score this season, but he's still a key cog on the Leafs' blue line. At this point, the bearded beast will be hard-pressed to hit the 30-point mark. Only you know how that fits in your format.
Muzzin produced an assist, three shots on goal and two PIM in Thursday's 3-1 win over the Coyotes.
Muzzin is beginning to heat up again with three assists in his last five games. The 30-year-old defenseman has 12 points, 51 hits and 48 shots on goal through 23 appearances this season. His physicality will keep him helpful for most fantasy owners.
Muzzin delivered an assist, two blocked shots and four hits in Friday's 4-2 loss to the Bruins.
Muzzin crushed a point shot that Auston Matthews deflected into the cage for Toronto's first tally. The ex-King isn't seeing much power-play ice time (00:21), but Muzzin has tangible fantasy value as long as he's jumping over the boards at the same time as Matthews at even strength.
Muzzin (personal) will suit up in Tuesday's game against the Kings, NHL.com's Dave McCarthy reports.
Muzzin sat out this past Saturday's game against the Flyers as he tended to a personal matter, but the veteran blueliner will be in action against his former team Tuesday. He's off to a hot start this year with nine points and a plus-4 rating through 14 games, and he'll look to keep it up against the league's 31st-ranked defense (4.07 GAA).
