The news was confirmed by head coach Sheldon Keefe on Tuesday. The 25-year-old Timmins has missed four recent games, appearing in a total of just 16 this season.

Tuesday evening’s Leafs lineup will also notably lack assistant captain Morgan Rielly, facing the possibility of a lengthy league suspension for cross-checking(opens in a new tab). Rielly struck the Ottawa Senators’ Ridly Greig in retaliation for firing a slap shot into an empty net with 5.1 seconds left in the team’s game Saturday night. He is scheduled to undergo a hearing on the matter Tuesday.
