NHL Can’t Comment On Joffrey Lupul’s Claim Yet

Published

on

The National Hockey LEague can’t comment on the claim of current Toronto Maple Leafs forward Joffrey Lupul just yet.

Lupul’s time with Toronto may be running out as the forward is clearly on thin ice after a controversial Instagram post he made on Sunday discussing the notion that he’s unable to play in the NHL despite reportedly failing his training camp medical.

The post read: “Haha failed physical? They (Leafs) cheat, everyone lets them.”

Lupul is entering the final season of a five-year, $26.25-million contract with the Maple Leafs and missed all of last season after not being cleared to play in training camp.

“We aren’t in a position to comment right now,” NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly said to TSN’s Darren Dreger on Monday.

“That may or may not change when we know more.”

By Toronto delegating Lupul as “injured” they are allowed to place Lupul and his $5.25-million cap hit on long-term injured reserve, freeing up the cap space in return.

The New York Islanders have placed Andrew Ladd on waivers, according to an official team announcement.

“He’s played the maximum number of conditioning games–five games” Islanders’ general manager Lou Lamoriello said.”He needs to play in games to see exactly where the strength is and where the liabilities are and so forth. So we’ll get him down, he’ll leave today to go up to Belleville and play this weekend at Belleville and Laval.

There’s no timetable. His play and physical fitness will determine that.”

Ladd, who inked a seven-year, $38.5 million contract back in 2016, has not played in a game for the Islanders this season.
