    Kapanen (concussion) will be in Tuesday's lineup against the Predators.

    Impact

    As expected, the 22-year-old will return from a four-game absence in Nashville. Kapanen will be looking for his 20th goal in his first full-time NHL season.

    News

    Kapanen (concussion) is expected to play Tuesday in Nashville, Dave McCarthy of NHL.com reports.

    Impact

    Kapanen has missed the last four games with a concussion, but on Monday, head coach Mike Babcock went on record as saying the 22-year-old could've returned sooner, but the team elected to hold Kapanen out longer for precautionary reasons. As of now, it appears he'll return Tuesday, but expect the team to confirm Kapanen's playing status well before warmups.

    News

    Kapanen (concussion) skated on his own prior to Friday's practice, Paul Hendrick of the Maple Leafs' official site reports.

    Impact

    Kapanen will need to be cleared to practice with his teammates before returning to game action, so although he's clearly trending in the right direction, it's safe to assume he won't be available for Friday's matchup with Philadelphia or Saturday's game against the Senators. Another update on the 22-year-old winger's status should surface once he's ready to start taking contact.

    News

    Kapanen is dealing with a concussion and will not play Wednesday against the Blackhawks.

    Impact

    Kapanen has broken out in his age-22 season, posting 42 points -- 19 goals and 23 assists -- over 68 games with a plus-13 rating. While part of his success can be attributed to the talent around him, Kapanen's proven he's no slouch as a goal-scorer. Look for Kapanen's clearance for contact to signify him nearing a return to action.

    News

    Kapanen (illness) will not suit up in Monday's home tilt against Tampa Bay.

    Impact

    It seems that the illness hampering Kapanen came unexpectedly, and the team will hold him out as a precaution. Toronto will certainly miss his 42 points in 68 games this campaign, and Trevor Moore will draw into the lineup in his stead. Kapanen's next chance to suit up is Wednesday against the Blackhawks.
