Kerfoot underwent surgery to repair dental fractures and is out indefinitely.

Kerfoot's injury originally occurred on November 5th vs.the Kings but played through it as long as he could. Kerfoot ultimately elected to undergo surgery and will miss some time. Jason Spezza is expected to replace him as the Maple Leafs' third-line centre and will also see the PP2 time while Kerfoot is sidelined.

Andersen will start Wednesday against the Islanders.

Andersen gave up two goals on 32 shots in the Maple Leafs loss to the Flyers last Saturday. As is customary, Andersen will start every game until the tail-end of a back-to-back, so look for him to start Tuesday and Thursday with Kasimir Kaskisuo making his NHL debut on Friday. Andersen has not lost on the road (3-0-0) this season and has won his last five starts against the Islanders while stopping 150 of the 160 shots (.938 SV%) that he has faced.

Hyman (knee) will make his season debut on Wednesday.

Hyman missed the first 19 games of the season but will play Wednesday vs. the Islanders. Hyman's return comes at a great time, as he'll slide in for Mitch Marner, who is out with a high-ankle sprain. Hyman likely won't have the same success with Marner out, but he'll still be with John Tavares on Wednesday. The 27-year-old set career-highs in goals (21) and points (41) in 71 games last year.

The Maple Leafs have recalled Kasimir Kaskisuo from Toronto (AHL).

With Michael Hutchinson being waived on Monday, Kaskisuo comes up to serve as Frederik Andersen's backup moving forward. Kaskisuo is a 23-year-old, who has been with the Marlies since the end of the 2016 season. He has been fantastic to start 2019-20, going 6-1-1 with a 2.13 GAA and .928 SV% in eight games. He will likely make his NHL debut in Pittsburgh on Saturday night.

Marner (ankle) will not play Sunday; will undergo an MRI to determine the severity of the injury.

Marner was forced to leave Saturday's game vs. the Flyers with an ankle injury that he suffered after getting tangled up and falling awkwardly on a face-off. Marner did not travel to Chicago for Sunday's game and could potentially be out for an extended period of time. Marner will undergo an MRI and the Maple Leafs should release a timetable early next week.

Andersen is 6-2-2 with a 2.92 GAA and .906 SV% in 10 starts at Scotiabank Arena this season.

Petan has cleared waivers and been assigned to the Toronto Marlies (AHL).

Petan played one game during his most recent call-up and heads back to the AHL after clearing waivers on Friday afternoon. The 24-year-old, who has five points (2G / 3A) in two AHL games, becomes a more intriguing trade target for other teams after clearing waivers.

Andersen will start Thursday vs. the Golden Knights.

Andersen stopped 24 of 25 shots in the Maple Leafs win over the Kings on Tuesday. Andersen has now won three of his last four starts with a 2.17 GAA and .922 SV%. He is heating up and catches a break with Malcolm Subban starting instead of Marc-Andre Fleury. Vegas is 5-2-0 and is scoring 2.86 goals per game in their first seven road games.

Petan has been recalled from Toronto (AHL) and will play on Tuesday.

Petan didn't do much with the Maple Leafs earlier in the year but had a nice two-game stint with the Marlies, picking up two goals and three assists. He will replace Dmytro Timashov on the fourth line and re-enters the lineup with one goal and one assist in nine career games with the Maple Leafs.

Andersen will start Tuesday vs. the Kings.

Andersen allowed three goals on 40 shots in the Maple Leafs shootout win in Philadelphia on Saturday. Andersen has won five of his last seven starts while posting a 2.62 GAA and .917 SV% and he becomes an even better option with John Tavares drawing back into the lineup tonight. Los Angeles comes in averaging 2.71 goals per game (23rd).

Tavares (finger) will return to the Maple Leafs lineup on Tuesday.

Tavares missed seven games with a fractured finger but will play Tuesday vs. the Kings. Unsurprisingly, the Maple Leafs struggled without their captain, going 3-2-2 while averaging 3.00 goals per game versus 4-3-1 while averaging 3.88 goals per game with him in the lineup. He'll return with seven points (3G / 4A) in eight games and will play on a line with Mitch Marner and Trevor Moore.
