Joffrey Lupul spent the summer in an unbelievably intense training program and arrived in camp in fabulous shape.
Lupul has had trouble staying healthy the past few seasons and the hope is that with his new workout regime he will avoid the injuries that have plagued him over his career. Lupul is faster, stronger and has put on 15 pounds of muscle this offseason under the watchful eye of an MMA and football trainer. Mike Babcock has taken notice and seems ready to give Lupul a sizeable role with the Buds this season. Keep Lupul in mind during your draft's end game. Oct 3 - 12:54 PM

Joffrey Lupul believes the Toronto Maple Leafs could surprise some people this season.

"I’m really happy with the group they’ve put together," said Lupul. "A lot of experience. We’ve got the possibility to surprise some people. But it’s not going to come easy, it’s going to take a lot of work. The goal you want to set is to be in the playoffs. That’s every team’s goal. Short-term, right now, it’s getting better each day, learning the new system, playing better as individuals, making sure we’re ready for the start of the season." Lupul is saying all the right things, but the odds are heavily stacked against Toronto making the playoffs.

Joffrey Lupul could benefit from the hiring of new coach Mike Babcock.

It will be a fresh start for the talented but inconsistent forward. Lupul has trained hard this offseason and seems to have put a string of injuries behind him. Babcock seems to be a fan of the rugged winger. "We always thought he was effective when he played against us when he was healthy", said Babcock. "He can skate, he can be physical, he can shoot the puck, he's tenacious, he works". Sounds like Babcock will give Lupul every chance to succeed so long as the effort is there. Keep Lupul in mind in the latter rounds of your draft.

Joffrey Lupul scored two goals in the Maple Leafs' 4-3 exhibition win over the Senators in Ottawa Monday night.

Lupul's second goal came 55 seconds into overtime, thus concluding the Leafs' second victory over Ottawa in split-squad action. The Leafs' other win over Ottawa was sparked by P.A. Parenteau, who scored twice in a 4-1 outcome in Toronto. Dion Phaneuf T.J. Brennan had the other two Toronto goals. Shane Prince and Bobby Ryan posted goals for the Sens. They gave Ottawa a 2-0 lead in the first period. Erik Karlsson assisted on each Ottawa goal. James Reimer started in goal for Toronto and stopped 21 of the 24 shots he faced. Garret Sparks relieved Reimer in the third period and turned aside all eight shots he faced. Craig Anderson stopped 18 of 20 shots for the Senators. Matthew O'Connor came in for Anderson and made 15 saves on 17 shots.

Joffrey Lupul appears to be as excited as Toronto's fans are that Mike Babcock has been hired to coach the Maple Leafs.

Lupul and Babcock have a history together that started in 2003-04 with the Anaheim then-Mighty Ducks. Lupul was a rookie winger, who'd go on to score 13 goals and 34 points over his 74-game rookie campaign. And Babcock was in his second season as head coach. The Mighty Ducks failed to make the playoffs a season after losing to the New Jersey Devils in 2002's Stanley Cup Final in seven games. "The one thing that’s stuck with me is how he was the first guy there every day and the last guy to leave," Lupul said of Babcock. "And it was like that every day. He took a certain pride that nobody was ever going to outwork him or us."

Joffrey Lupul was benched during Toronto's 4-3 shootout win over Buffalo on Wednesday night.

"Joffrey turned the puck over a few times," said coach Peter Horachek. "He let a guy go on the backcheck. The guy could have scored. There were two, three, four things that were not up to (Lupul's) standards. I didn't think he was on top of his game." Lupul hasn't scored a goal since Dec. 29 and he's gone without a point in his last 12 outings.

Joffrey Lupul, Dion Phaneuf, and Dion's wife, Elisha Cuthbert, have gotten legal representation after an inappropriate Tweet made it onto a TSN broadcast.

Gall Legge Grant & Munroe LLP have written a letter demanding that TSN formally apology and "pay a significant amount of damages to each of our clients for broadcasting a false and defamatory tweet during their trade deadline show yesterday." The author of the Tweet in question, Anthony Adragna, is also receiving a similar letter. Gall Legge Grant & Munroe LLP go on to state that a failure to comply immediately will result in a lawsuit against TSN and Adragna, per their clients instructions. The letter also states that Phaneuf and Lupul won't be talking about the matter to the media.

Joffrey Lupul's name has surfaced in trade rumors, but he would like to stay with the Maple Leafs.

"I want to stay here. I like playing here, I love Toronto," said Lupul. "But if I'm not in the plans here, if they are truly are wanting to make as many changes as I keep hearing about, I'm comfortable that way too. This is where I want to be. If I am to be somewhere else, it's not going to be that difficult." Even though he frequently battles the injury bug, Lupul is reportedly drawing interest from other clubs. He has nine goals and 19 points in 33 games this campaign.

Joffrey Lupul played 17:16 in his return to the Leafs' lineup on Saturday.

Toronto defeated Winnipeg by a score of 4-3. Lupul missed four consecutive games with a lower-body injury. He didn't register a point in the game but he did finish the night with two shots on goal and a plus-2 rating. There's an outside chance that Lupul could be traded between now and the March 2nd trade deadline. He took Brandon Kozun's spot in the lineup.

The Toronto Maple Leafs get winger Joffrey Lupul back from his lower-body injury on Saturday.

Lupul hasn't played since Feb. 10, when he registered a +1 and two SOG. It's been an injury-ravaged season for the 31-year-old, who's been limited to 32 games played (with 19 points).

Joffrey Lupul (lower body) will miss Tuesday's game.

Lupul remains day-to-day as he works towards getting back to 100%. The Maple Leafs won't make the playoffs this season, so there's no real reason for Lupul to try and push himself to come back sooner and risk potentially making things worse in the long run.
Feb 17 - 12:44 PM

Joffrey Lupul is back on the sidelines due to an aggravated lower-body injury.

It's presumably the same ailment that caused Lupul to miss 11 games back in January. This time around he'll be out for at least three contests. He's had some great stretches with the Maple Leafs, but injuries have been a constant problem with him. Keep that in mind when evaluating his worth for the 2015-16 campaign.
Feb 11 - 1:01 PM

Joffrey Lupul has been activated by the Maple Leafs and he'll be back in the lineup on Thursday.

He has sat out the last 11 games with a lower-body injury. It's still unclear where Lupul will play, but it wouldn't be surprising if he bumped Leo Komarov of the top line and skated alongside Nazem Kadri and Phil Kessel.

Joffrey Lupul (lower body) will be a game-time decision for Thursday's game at Arizona.

He has been sidelined since Dec. 31 due to a lower-body injury. Lupul has nine goals and 17 points in 26 games this year and when he returns he could help Phil Kessel break free from a terrible cold streak. The two of them have displayed plenty of chemistry in the past.
