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.
