News: Ashton has completed his 20-game suspension for violating the league's performance enhancing substances protocol and has been reinstated onto the Leafs' active roster, James Mirtle of The Globe and Mail reports. He will now head to AHL Toronto for a conditioning stint, according to David Alter of MapleLeafs.com.
Impact: Since he hasn't been able to play since early November, Ashton will likely spend multiple games on the assignment before he's called back up to the parent club. Ashton had largely served as a healthy scratch for the Leafs prior to his suspension, making just six appearances on the season. He'll likely see limited duty again once he rejoins the Leafs.
News: Komarov (concussion) skated with the Leafs' strength and conditioning coach prior to Friday's practice, David Alter of MapleLeafs.com reports.
Impact: It's just the second time that Komarov has taken to the ice since suffering the concussion back on Nov. 29. The forward still remains under league protocol and hasn't been cleared to resume practicing with the team, likely making him at least a week away from a return to action.
