Kerfoot (undisclosed) rejoined the team for Monday's practice session, David Alter of The Canadian Press reports.
Kerfoot ended the year on a 12-game goalless streak, including the playoffs, in which he registered four assists, 10 shots and 14 blocks. The Vancouver native should retake his spot on the third line, which will likely push Pierre Engvall to the bench.
Kerfoot (undisclosed) resumed skating Friday, David Alter of The Canadian Press reports.
Kerfoot still hasn't practiced since suffering an injury during Tuesday's on-ice session, but he's clearly trending in the right direction. As long as he doesn't suffer any setbacks, Kerfoot should be ready for Toronto's regular-season opener against Montreal on Wednesday.
Kerfoot suffered an undisclosed injury during Tuesday's practice and likely won't skate Wednesday, Mike Zeisberger of NHL.com reports.
Although Kerfoot almost certainly won't be on the ice for Wednesday's practice, he's currently considered day-to-day, so it doesn't sound like the undisclosed injury he picked up Tuesday will keep him sidelined long term. The 26-year-old posted nine goals and 28 points in 65 games last season and is expected to center Toronto's third line during the upcoming campaign.
Kerfoot registered a pair of assists, one while shorthanded, in Thursday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Blue Jackets in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Qualifiers.
Kerfoot set up Cody Ceci's shorthanded goal in the first period as well as the first professional lamp-lighter by Nick Robertson in the second. Through three games in the series, Kerfoot has three helpers. He had a down year with 28 points in 65 contests during the regular season, but the 25-year-old is solid in a third-line role.
Kerfoot tallied two assists in a 3-2 win over Arizona on Tuesday.
It's been a struggle for Kerfoot in 2019-20, but a pair of assists in Tuesday's win will certainly help the winger's confidence. Toronto hosts Dallas on Thursday, and Kerfoot collected an assist in theor only other meeting this season. Kerfoot has only scored once in the past 15 games.
Kerfoot posted an assist and three shots on goal in Sunday's 8-4 loss to the Panthers.
Kerfoot had the secondary helper on a John Tavares goal in the second period. The 25-year-old forward is up to 18 points (seven tallies, 11 helpers) with 60 shots and 24 PIM through 41 games this season.
Kerfoot has five points (one goal, four assists) in his last six games.
Overall, he's at 17 points (seven goals, 10 assists) in 38 games, so his production is a little behind his usual 42-43 points each season. Kerfoot isn't getting the power-play time he was getting in Colorado, so all things considered, there's growth in his five-on-five game -- but that doesn't help as much in fantasy.
Kerfoot scored a goal and added an assist Saturday in a 4-1 victory over the Oilers.
The goal snapped a 12-game goal drought. Kerfoot is delivering plenty in the role of third-line center, but that doesn't include enough offence to make him fantasy worthy. He has six goals and five assists in 29 games.
Kerfoot (suspension) returned to action Saturday against Buffalo. He fired three shots and delivered two hits in 13:07 of ice time.
Kerfoot's ice time was in line with his recent contests. His pointless streak stands at seven games and he has just one goal in his last 12 matches. No need to activate Kerfoot -- he needs to show more before he can help you.
Kerfoot has served his two-game suspension and will be eligible to rejoin the lineup for Saturday's matchup with Buffalo.
Kerfoot, who's picked up eight points in 22 games this campaign, will likely return to a bottom-six role Saturday. The 25-year-old forward will be looking to snap his six-game scoreless streak against the Sabres.
Kerfoot was suspended two games by the NHL Department of Player Safety on Monday for boarding Colorado's Erik Johnson.
Kerfoot's absence will keep him out for the remaining two games of the Maple Leafs' road trip. The 25-year-old is bogged down in a six-game pointless streak and will have to wait longer to get back on the scoresheet. The Vancouver native's bottom-six spot in the lineup will go to either Dmytro Timashov or Nick Shore.
Kerfoot is set for a hearing with the Department of Player Safety on Monday for boarding Colorado's Erik Johnson.
Kerfoot made a dangerous play when forechecking, as he sent an unsuspecting Johnson head-first into the boards with a cross-check. The pending discipline would likely be available Monday afternoon, and if Kerfoot is forced to miss time, Nicolas Petan and Dmytro Timashov would be candidates to enter the lineup.
Kerfoot (face) had four blocked shots and two hits while skating 13:26 in Thursday's 3-1 win over the Coyotes.
Kerfoot missed three games to recover from surgery for facial dental fractures. Now that he's healthy enough to play, he should see time on the third line and potentially the second power-play unit when he's back up to speed. The 25-year-old forward has eight points, 21 hits, 14 blocked shots and 37 shots on goal in 21 appearances this year.
Kerfoot (face) is out there for warmups and is expected to play in Thursday's game versus Arizona, Paul Hendrick of the Maple Leafs' official site reports.
Kerfoot returned to practice Wednesday after undergoing surgery to repair facial dental fractures, and his status coming into this game was uncertain. Now that he's officially ready to go, he's expected to man a third-line role with Jason Spezza and Kasperi Kapanen.
Kerfoot (face) will be a game-time decision for Thursday's game against Arizona, Terry Koshan of The Toronto Sun reports.
Kerfoot returned to practice Wednesday, which was the first sign that he might be an option Thursday. If he's able to go, the 25-year-old forward will slot into a bottom-six role against the Coyotes.
Kerfoot (face) returned to practice Wednesday, Terry Koshan of The Toronto Sun reports.
Kerfoot has missed Toronto's last three games after undergoing surgery to repair facial dental fractures, but his presence on the ice Wednesday suggests he could be ready to rejoin the lineup as soon as Thursday against Arizona. The 25-year-old forward will likely be sporting a full face mask upon his return to action, but that shouldn't impact his effectiveness. If he's able to go, Kerfoot will fill a bottom-six role against the Coyotes, centering Ilya Mikheyev and Jason Spezza on the Maple Leafs' third line.
Kerfoot is out indefinitely after having facial surgery Friday.
According to the team, Kerfoot sustained the injury Nov. 5 against the Kings, which means he played in four games while dealing with facial fractures. The center will almost certainly be designated for injured reserve in short order. In the meantime, Dmytro Timashov and Jason Spezza figure to compete for the open spot in the lineup.
Kerfoot scored his fifth goal of the campaign in Tuesday's 3-1 win over the Kings.
The goal put a stop to Kerfoot's pointless drought that had reached four games, as he continues to struggle in a Maple Leafs uniform. He has started his Toronto tenure slowly, managing only eight points in 16 games. Kerfoot and the Maple Leafs next take on Vegas on Thursday. In six career games versus the Golden Knights, the Canadian-born center has collected a pair of assists.
Kerfoot scored a power-play goal and added an even-strength assist in Tuesday's 4-2 loss to the Bruins.
The former Avs center was clicking with Kaspari Kapanen, as the duo set up each other's goals, but nobody else on the Leafs could get going. Kerfoot now has three goals and seven points through 11 games to begin the season.
Kerfoot scored a goal in Saturday's 4-3 overtime victory over Boston.
Kerfoot has five points (three goals, two assists) in nine games, but has managed points in just three games. He certainly has fantasy value over the long haul, but there will be short-term fluctuations in his game. And that will make Kerfoot a challenging activation in head-to-head and daily formats.
