Brodie returns to action with the Maple Leafs

TJ Brodie will return to the Toronto Maple Leafs roster for the game against the Los Angeles Kings at Scotiabank Arena on Thursday (7 p.m. ET; TVAS, TSN4, BSW, SN NOW, ESPN+).

The defender has missed the last 12 games with an oblique injury.

“I felt good [pendant l’entraînement matinal], Brodie said. I felt good in the last few days, so hopefully that continues tonight. »

Brodie trained as a duo with Conor Timmins, who played his first game with the Maple Leafs on Tuesday – he was acquired in a Nov. 23 trade. For Brodie, readjusting to game tempo is the biggest challenge after a long absence.

“The mental aspect in relation to a return to action, he said. It’s hard to replicate that mindset in training, so you have to try to do the right readings and read the game well. »

Toronto went 9-0-3 without Brodie, who has two assists in 15 games this season.

the attacker Denis Malgin will also be inserted into the roster after being left out in the last three games.
