No Franson (lower body) for Leafs Tuesday
The Toronto Maple Leafs will face the San Jose Sharks on Tuesday without Cody Franson. While Nazem Kadri is missing tonight’s game for personal reasons, Franson is dealing with a lower-body injury.
PHT’s own Joe Yerdon pointed out that the 26-year-old at least had a shot to play today, as he was getting treatment earlier this morning and was considered a game-time decision. Apparently he wasn’t good enough to go, then.
Franson has 13 assists in 26 games so far this season. The Leafs have lost four games in a row, with frustration building, so even losing a mid-level defenseman hurts.
