BREAKING: Sheldon Keefe Makes Shocking Lineup Choice Ahead Of Key Matchup

Published March 1, 2024 at 7:18 PM

The Toronto Maple Leafs are coming off a convincing 4-2 victory against the Arizona Coyotes. However, the lineup appears as though it will not be the same for the team's next game tomorrow night.

Robertson Skating As Extra During Leafs Practice

Young winger Nick Robertson has struggled to maintain a consistent spot with the Leafs this season. Now he appears to be heading to the press box once again as he was seen practicing as a healthy scratch for the Leafs this morning.

The 22-year-old has eight goals and 19 points in 41 games this season for the Leafs. His season has been full of highs and lows as the young forward has shown flashes of high end offensive skill.

However, Sheldon Keefe apparently is not all that convinced in his game as he looks to be a healthy scratch tomorrow night against the New York Rangers. Robertson had a little over 15 minutes of ice time last night, recording two shots on goal with not much else happening on the ice. That being said, he has been a reliability in his own end this season. Unless he can improve there, he will likely remain in and out of the lineup like this.
