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 Detroit Red Wings have hired franchise icon and former Tampa Bay Lightning general manager Steve Yzerman to take over the post as their general manager.
