Leafs' Jake Muzzin not ruled out for Game 7, undergoing further tests

Toronto Maple Leafs' Jake Muzzin left the game with an injury in the 2nd period and has not returned.

Toronto Maple Leafs defenceman Jake Muzzin has not been ruled out for Game 7 of the team's first-round series against the Montreal Canadiens and is undergoing further tests on his lower-body injury, coach Sheldon Keefe told reporters Sunday.

The veteran rearguard was hurt on a non-contact play in the second period of the Leafs' 3-2 overtime loss to the Canadiens in Saturday's Game 6. While skating through the neutral zone, Muzzin stopped mid-stride, appearing to be in discomfort. He skated to the bench, headed to the dressing room and did not return.

Muzzin had four goals and 23 assists in 53 regular-season games this year.

The Leafs and Canadiens face off in Game 7 on Monday at 7 p.m. ET / 4 p.m. PT on Sportsnet
