Joffrey Lupul apologized on Wednesday for writing in an Instagram comment that the Toronto Maple Leafs “cheat” after he failed a physical for the team on the first day of training camp.

Earlier this week, the Maple Leafs forward posted a picture on Instagram of himself snowboarding and then wrote in the comments section: “I’m ready … just awaiting the call” and “haha failed physical? They cheat. Everyone lets them.”

He later deleted the comments.

On Wednesday, he apologized and said he will not be seeking a second opinion on his physical.

Lupul, 33, is under contract through the end of this season but hasn’t played since the 2015-16 season because of various injuries. His last game was on Feb. 6, 2016.

He has 205 goals and 215 assists in 701 career games.
