Simultaneously, the Maple Leafs received somber news regarding defenseman Jake Muzzin. Muzzin, 34, faced a challenging season in 2022-2023, as he was limited to just four games due to a back injury. Additionally, Muzzin has a history of concussions. His absence from play dates back to October 17, 2022, due to the persistent injury.

With the 34-year-old entering the final season of his four-year, $22.5 million contract, his future in the sport remains uncertain. While it remains unclear if Muzzin will ever return to the ice, he certainly won’t be back this season says Treliving. Muzzin’s impressive career statistics include 69 goals and 294 points in 683 games, with a Stanley Cup victory in 2014 with the Los Angeles Kings.

As the Maple Leafs grapple with these developments, the focus remains on supporting the players through their respective challenges and recoveries, with the team and its fans eagerly awaiting further updates on Murray’s surgery and Muzzin’s career path.
