The Leafs are in violation of a term of the collective agreement

The Leafs are in violation of a term of the collective agreement

The Toronto Maple Leafs will be fined $100,000 for violating a clause in the collective agreement.

In fact, the Queen City formation on December 26 had traveled to St. Louis in anticipation of their game against the Blues, on December 27.

However, as stipulated in Clause 16.5(b) of the Collective Agreement, teams, in particular, are not entitled to travel during the three-day holiday break, i.e. 24, 25 and 26 December.

However, as reported by Sportsnet, the Queen City team took to St. Louis at 10:30 p.m. on Boxing Day. Since the trip from Toronto to St. Louis can take up to two hours, the Leafs decided that spending the night in Missouri was more rewarding than getting there in the wee hours of December 27th.

The Leafs won that game against the Blues, 5-4, in overtime.

In addition, the team’s coach, Sheldon Cave, was fined for his behavior, which was deemed inappropriate, towards the referees during the same game against the Blues.

“Listen: You can get emotional during a game. I’m as competitive as anyone. But when the game is over, especially when you get the two points, you don’t think about it too much,” Keefe said, according to Sportsnet.

Thus, Keefe will be forgiven of $25,000.

With 50 points in 35, the Leafs sit well in second place in the Atlantic Division standings.

Morgan Rielly is back

After a month out due to a knee injury, Morgan Riley will be able to return to action for next Thursday’s game against the Arizona Coyotes.

“I’m happy to be back with the guys. It’s been a long month, I feel,” Riley admitted as he recovered from his accidental collision with Kyle Palmieri of the New York Islanders in November.

Without their star defenseman, the Maple Leafs won 12-2-1.

“They played exceptionally well and it was fun to watch. The guys accepted more responsibilities and played very well,” said No. 44.
