  • Maple Leafs' Timothy Liljegren: Leads late comeback in OT win

    Liljegren had a goal and an assist in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime win over the Rangers.

    Liljegren did his damage late. He tied the score at 2-2 with 4:11 left in regulation by shoveling a rebound over Igor Shesterkin's glove before setting up Mitch Marner's game-winner 19 seconds into overtime. This was Liljegren's second multi-point game of the season, as the 23-year-old defenseman potted two goals against the Golden Knights on Nov. 8.

    Liljegren (upper body) will be available for Saturday's game versus Montreal, Terry Koshan of The Toronto Sun reports.

    Liljegren exited Thursday's win over Winnipeg in the third period after taking a shot up high, but it appears as though his departure was likely precautionary. Look for the 23-year-old Swede to skate on the top pairing against the Canadiens.

    Liljegren notched an assist, three hits and a plus-2 rating in Tuesday's 4-0 win over the Stars.

    Liljegren snapped a four-game point drought with the helper. The 23-year-old defenseman has two goals, three assists, 12 shots on net, 29 hits, 25 blocked shots and a plus-11 rating through 16 contests overall. As long as the Maple Leafs are battling multiple injuries on the blue line, the Swede should be in line for a top-four role.

  • Maple Leafs' Timothy Liljegren: Lights lamp twice Tuesday

    Liljegren scored two goals on two shots and added four hits and a plus-1 rating in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Golden Knights.

    In his third game of the season, Liljegren collected his first points by blasting home shots from both faceoffs circles, one in the first period and one in the second. The 23-year-old blueliner had a solid first NHL season in 2021-22 with five goals and 23 points in 61 games, and he's flashed some offensive upside in the AHL, but until he works his way into some power-play time for Toronto, his fantasy ceiling will be limited.

  • Maple Leafs' Timothy Liljegren: Back on active roster

    Liljegren (groin) is back on Toronto's active roster, per the NHL media site.

    A spot on Toronto's roster opened up when Nicolas Aube-Kubel was claimed off waivers by Washington on Saturday. After having hernia surgery prior to the start of training camp, Liljegren is expected to make his season debut Saturday versus Boston, David Alter of Sports Illustrated reports. The 23-year-old blueliner supplied 23 points, 79 shots on goal, 60 blocks and 87 hits in 61 games during the 2021-22 campaign. Liljegren is slated to be paired with Morgan Rielly.

  • Maple Leafs' Timothy Liljegren: Targeting Saturday return

    Liljegren (groin) is expected to be back in action versus the Bruins on Saturday, Mark Masters of TSN.ca reports.

    During Liljegren's minor-league conditioning stint, he notched one assist in two games for AHL Toronto. While the defenseman won't be an option to face the Flyers on Wednesday, he is clearly nearing a return to the ice. In order to suit up against Philadelphia, Liljegren will need to first be activated off long-term injured reserve.

  • Maple Leafs' Timothy Liljegren: Moves to LTIR

    Liljegren (hernia surgery) was moved to long-term injured reserve Monday by the Leafs.

  • Maple Leafs' Timothy Liljegren: Skating Friday

    Liljegren (hernia surgery) was skating with other injured Maple Leafs on Friday, David Alter of Sports Illustrated reports.

  • Maple Leafs' Timothy Liljegren: Set for six-week absence

    Liljegren recently underwent hernia surgery and will be sidelined for six weeks, David Alter of Sports Illustrated reports Wednesday.

    Based on Liljegren's recovery timeline, he figures to miss the first month of the season with a potential early November return. With Rasmus Sandin still unsigned, Liljegren's absence could open the door for Jordie Benn or Victor Mete to secure a place on the Opening Night roster versus Montreal. For his part, Liljegren figures to start the season on long-term injured reserve.

  • Maple Leafs' Timothy Liljegren: Set to miss camp

    Liljegren is expected to be sidelined for Leafs training camp with an undisclosed injury, Sportsnet's Chris Johnston reports Tuesday.

    Liljegren should probably be considered questionable for Opening Night against Montreal at this point. Even if he does crack the lineup for the season opener, the 23-year-old blueliner figures to have some rust to shake off. Last year, the Swede set new personal bests in games played (61), goals (five) and assists (18). Barring a long-term stint on the shelf, Liljegren should be capable of putting up 25-30 points this year.

  • Maple Leafs' Timothy Liljegren: Re-ups with team

    Liljegren penned a two-year, $2.8 million contract extension with Toronto on Monday.

    Liljegren set new personal bests in games (61), goals (five) and assists (18) this past season and figures to remain a fixture on the Leafs' blue line next year. How much ice time he gets will likely depend on whether the team re-signs Ilya Lyubushkin in the offseason.

  • Maple Leafs' Timothy Liljegren: Likely healthy scratch for Game 3

    Liljegren will likely be replaced by Justin Holl for Game 3 on Friday, reports Mark Masters of TSN.

    It's not based on his play -- he's been solid. The Leafs have a bounty of blueliners and Holl offers a bit more size on the back end with the Lightning having last change at home. Liljegren is plus-2 with one shot across the first two games.
