According to TSN’s Kristen Shilton, Barrie returned to the ice twice to test his leg: first during a television time later in the first season and again after the first break before he and the Leafs’ teaching staff called it his participation for the night. Shilton described Barrie’s movements as “cautious” during his echoes on the ice and wrote that he seemed to favor his left foot strongly.

Victoria, B.C. the native had a tough go at it in his first season with the Maple Leafs. Usually a high attacking defender, Barrie did not score a goal until his 20th in blue and white. If it stays away from the Toronto lineup in the long run, it could include forward Andreas Johnsson (foot) and blueliner Trevor Moore (shoulder) in injured reserve.

Barrie has 13 points in 34 games with the Maple Leafs this season. Toronto acquired him in an offseason trade that sent Nazem Kadri to Avalanche, Colorado.
