Carlyle: Leafs’ Lupul available Monday vs. Devils

Toronto Maple Leafs forward Joffrey Lupul is available for Monday’s game against the New Jersey Devils, according to Leafs head coach Randy Carlyle.

Carlyle, who made the announcement following Monday’s morning skate, added that Lupul will only play if he is “110 per cent ready” and that the team would make a decision Monday afternoon on whether or not to insert him in the lineup.

Lupul has been out of action since April 4 with what the team described as “concussion-like symptoms” after he was hit simultaneously by Jay Rosehill and Adam Hall during a 5-3 loss to the Philadelphia Flyers.

Prior to the injury, Lupul had registered 14 points (six goals, eight assists) in seven games. The 29-year-old missed 25 games earlier in the season with a broken arm.
