BREAKING: Ryan Reaves Forces Brad Treliving To Make A Roster Move

Published January 23, 2024 at 6:52 PM
The Toronto Maple Leafs have been forced to make a roster move following Ryan Reaves' latest comments during an interview with Sportsnet's Luke Fox which has sparked speculation.

General Manager Brad Treliving Activates Ryan Reaves Off IR

Just one day after candidly expressing his readiness to play, Toronto Maple Leafs forward Ryan Reaves has been activated off injured reserve. Reaves, who has been on IR since December 14, remained uncertain about his absence from the lineup, stating it's a question for the team. He emphasized staying prepared for any opportunity.

Ryan Reaves no longer listed on injured reserve. Activated.

Signed on July 1 to a three-year, $4.05 million deal, Reaves has one goal and 16 penalty minutes in 21 games. Before his injury, he had been a healthy scratch for several games, finding himself outside the active roster with over 12 forwards ahead of him.

In other news, Tyler Bertuzzi is designated as a non-roster player as he supports his wife awaiting the birth of their child. This designation allows him to be away without counting against the team's 23-man roster limit. Bertuzzi, with six goals and 14 assists in 45 games, signed a one-year, $5.5 million contract with the Maple Leafs in the offseason.

The Maple Leafs will have a huge decision to make once Tyler Bertuzzi makes his way back to the lineup as they will be over the 23-man roster limit which will force them to make a trade or place a player on waivers in order to sending him down to the Marlies.
