van Riemsdyk will miss 6-8 weeks with a non-displaced fracture in his left foot.

van Riemsdyk suffered the injury in Saturday’s blowout loss in San Jose. JVR leads the Maple Leafs in points with 29 (14G / 15A), but they’ll be without him for at least the next six weeks. Six weeks would have him returning in time for their game on February 23rd vs. Nashville—which means he’ll miss the next 17 games.

van Riemsdyk is on the ice for the Maple Leafs' gameday skate after leaving Tuesday's game.

van Riemsdyk was run over by teammate Dion Phaneuf in Tuesday's loss to the Sharks. He left briefly but did return, so there is no surprise that he is on the ice this afternoon and is expected to play tonight vs. L.A. Despite the blowout loss to the Sharks, JVR still picked up an assist and now has 54 points (26G/28A) in 65 games.

van Riemsdyk (undisclosed) did not skate again today, but has been cleared to play Thursday.

Leafs head coach Randy Carlyle said that he expects van Riemsdyk to play on Thursday after being cleared medically on Wednesday. JVR has not skated with the Leafs since returning from the Olympics. In Sochi the line of JVR-Pavelski-Kessel was the USA's most dangerous in the preliminary round, the Leafs hope that JVR and Kessel will be able to bring that back with them as they get back underway tomorrow. van Riemsdyk has 24 goals and 23 assits (47 points) in 38 games this season.

James van Riemsdyk has been moved to centre.

With the injuries to key centres Dave Bollland and Tyler Bozak the Maple Leafs have shifted van Riemsdyk from the left-wing to the first line centre between Phil Kessel and Joffrey Lupul. He has shown great chemistry with Kessel posting six goals and seven assists in 13 games. van Riemsdyk has never played centre in the NHL and only played it sparingly at the University of New Hampshire.
