Keefe added that Andersen recently had another follow-up appointment with doctors. The 31-year-old hasn’t played or been on the ice since March 19, a 4-3 loss to the Calgary Flames.
Andersen is dealing with a lower-body injury which Keefe said last week was progressing well and that the goaltender had received positive news from doctors.
Andersen is 13-8-2 this season with a 2.91 goals-against average and a .897 save percentage. In his absence, Jack Campbell has started six games in the Leafs net, going 6-0-0 with .941 save percentage. Michael Hutchinson has also started a pair of games during Andersen’s time out, an overtime loss to Edmonton on March 29 and win over the Flames on April 4.
