BREAKING: Maple Leafs analyst drops bombshell regarding Matt Murray

In breaking news, this Maple Leafs' analyst and former NHLer has just dropped a bombshell on Matt Murray's health status and the Leafs' intentions with him.

Kypreos Reveals Matt Murray Making His Way Back to Play This Season

There has been a lot of discussion around the Toronto Maple Leafs' goaltending situation this season. Whether it is Ilya Samsonov's poor performances, Martin Jones' successes, or Joseph Woll's injuries, there hasn't been a shortage of things to talk about regarding who is between the pipes for the Leafs.

Now, it looks like there is more to add to the goalie discussion in Leaf Land. According to Nick Kypreos, Leafs goalie Matt Murray is gearing up to return this season, sometime after the trade deadline.

"As mentioned in my notes a few weeks ago, goaltender Matt Murray is working himself back with the Leafs this season. He's on schedule to rejoin the team after the trade deadline and is expected to play some games before the regular season ends. The Leafs have not ruled out the potential of re-signing him." - Kypreos on Murray

Having options in net is great for the Leafs, as they have been short in the past, calling up Dennis Hiledby just to have him watch in case of emergency. Whether or not the Leafs need to sign Murray again is another thing. They don't have much cap space to play with, and Murray is ageing quickly.

Time will determine whether or not the Leafs need to fit Murray into the lineup or not.
