The Toronto Maple Leafs could have their bruising enforcer Colton Orr in the lineup Monday against the New York Rangers.

Orr, with zero points but 73 penalty minutes, hasn’t played since Dec. 3 due to an elbow injury. He has been taken off injured reserve, as per Jonas Siegel of TSN 1050, and could be playing on a line with Jerry D’Amigo and Jerred Smithson.

The Leafs are in New York to face the Rangers before the holiday part of the schedule kicks in.

The Leafs also demoted forward Troy Bodie to the Toronto Marlies of the American Hockey League.

In 14 games with the Leafs this season, the 28-year-old Bodie had a goal and three points, to go along with 15 penalty minutes.

    Good call. Nothing helps a team that is having trouble scoring goals more than a fourth line goon with no goals or points

      Other than make room for the skill players.

      Funny how all-time greats like Gretzky and Yzerman always thank the tough guys that helped them along the way. Weird.
