On Friday, the Toronto Maple Leafs announced that first-line center Auston Matthews had undergone wrist surgery. There’s not much news about it, but the first story is that Matthews had been experiencing discomfort in his wrist as he was engaged in his on-ice preseason training.

Matthews then spoke with the team’s medical staff, and after consultation the Maple Leafs’ doctors recommended that he have surgery surgery, which he did.
The word right now is that Matthews will need a little over six weeks to recover from the surgery. That means he won’t be ready for the beginning of the Maple Leafs’ training camp; however, the timing suggests that – if all goes well with his rehab – that he’ll likely be ready for the start of the regular season.
