The Maple Leafs head coach later confirmed that both defensemen are dealing with minor injuries. Joel Edmundson will be out for tonight's game, although Morgan Rielly's status will be decided closer to game time, according to Sheldon Keefe.

Per Keefe, Rielly is not ruled out for tonight. Minor injury, not illness. If he does not play today, will be day to day. Edmundson dealing with an injury as well but is not available tonight and "wouldn't expect him this week."

Joseph Woll gets the start for the Leafs tonight as they face off against the New Jersey Devils for what is expected to be an exciting game.
