Timothy Liljegren's injury garnered attention for several reasons.



Not only was it a dirty play by Brad Marchand, but the entire team's response came under scrutiny.


Ryan Reaves and the rest of the team faced criticism for their lack of response following the injury.

Reaves & Maple Leafs Address The Situation

Reaves earned his reputation as one of the NHL's top enforcers after years of fighting and intimidating opponents.

When Liljegren was injured, Reaves made a few comments from the bench, but nothing more.

Treliving brought him to avoid situations like this and act if ever anything happens. If Reaves doesn't stand up for his teammates, why is he here?

Reaves commented in a recent interview:

Reaves on the lack of response to the [Marchand] hit the other night; "It was addressed in the room. It'll change going forward."

It appears as though Ryan Reaves has sent a warning to the rest of NHL. Going forward there will be a response according to his comments.

With that being said this is not only on Reaves. Hockey is a team game and the team needs to all stick up for eachother.

"Both Reaves and Tavares said the lack of response to the Liljegren incident has been addressed by the team going forward."



It's reassuring to hear that the Maple Leafs have learned from the situation and that this won't happen again going forward.
