Matthew Lombardi is concussion symptom free according to this Toronto Star article.

Wow. Can't rush him into the lineup I don't think just yet, but come late October, early November I think he'll be in.

i know there's a thread about him on the radio but the discussion got sidetracked there, and this is a new health update with words from burke

Let's see what happens when he's on the ice with marginal contact first before celebrating. Good to see he's taking the next step though.

Good to hear the positive news on Lombardi, but If he isn't skating yet let alone taking part in contact drills it's hard to see him being ready by training camp. I'm fine with Lombardi recovering as he needs, we have guys that can fill the void for the time being. I'd be happy with a return in November for Lombo.

As depth is probably our main strength, I'd prefer to go very slow with him and take our time. Its great that hes getting healthy, But there's no need to rush him into training camp. When he's 100% and in game shape we can bring him in.

I am still hoping a return in january, you never want to rush these things, even if he is symptom free. Who knows, it can easily crawl back on you.

Asides, it's not just his career that's at stake, but also his life style so I am sure no one is going pressure him into this.

Thanks for your insight doctor.

Honestly I hate how everyone is speculating. He has just as much a chance to begin the season in October as he does in January.

The good thing is, not like we are counting on this guy to be a huge part of the team. If he gets healthy and it able to come back and play near the level he was at before the injury, its a huge bonus, IMO. Burke and company have the luxury of being very patient with Lombardi and giving him all the time he needs to get back.

I don't get why Burke is not sure if he'll make training camp, if he's symptom free (and is for the next 20 days) there should be no reason why he A) shouldn't at least finish training camp B) Be in the opening night line up (this is directed at HFBoard members)...if hes symptom free now, I'm sure 36 more days will be more then enough time to recoup and recover.

I still stand by my vote that Mathew Lombardi will score the opening goal of the Toronto Maple Leafs season .

20 day's isn't a lot to get yourself back into game shape for anyone who hasn't been heavily active in a little while. Hell, I thought I was ready for a field lacrosse tournament after a year off from lacrosse due to some ankle tendinitis. I took the required time off, trained every morning for three hours three weeks prior and was dead after the first quarter of the first game, haha. I didn't even think I let myself get that bad out of shape to be honest.

I think Burke is saying that to ease him back into the game and not feel like he's rushing Lombardi into anything until he's ready.

January?? The guy is symptom free, sure you don't want to rush him, but him missing 3 months of the season would be a terrible set back.

He's only done training sessions that are just over 20 minutes. Even if he is symptom free, he has to get back into shape, and a month isn't much time to keep healing and get back into good form.

To my understanding Lombardi said he was still working out (in the media call right after the trade). However 36 days = regular season, and that should be sufficient enough time.... I think (if the belief is, that he's been mildly training with PCS)

Time will tell I guess.

Probable that Lombardi will be rusty thanks to how much time he hasn't been able to work out. Still doesn't mean he can't get close enough with the time he still has and just get more and more into that top condition during the season.

Will just have to see how he looks at camp. Good news though to hear that he's symptom free.

people fail to realize such things... he's gotta get into game shape; mentally and physically. give him time.

Mathew Lombardi symptom free

Kevin McGran

Leafs centre Matthew Lombardi has been declared free of concussion symptoms, but might still miss the start of training camp, says GM Brian Burke.


“He is cleared for full activity on the bike,” Burke said in a phone interview. “The last report I got he was doing 20-plus minutes without symptoms. He has been declared symptom-free and now it’s about getting the workload back up.”

The Leafs knew full well when they acquired him and defenceman Cody Franson from Nashville that Lombardi had a concussion. He played only two games last season and the Leafs are hoping the centre can return to form, but won’t rush him.


With concussions, teams know there are no guarantees. Penguins star Sidney Crosby had advanced further than Lombardi — skating at about 90 per cent — but recently is reported to have suffered a setback. Lombardi is not skating.


“I don’t believe he will be there for the first day of training camp,” said Burke. “He may, but it’s not clear he will. But we’re very pleased with his progress.”


A healthy Lombardi would give the Leafs plenty of speed at centre, a position where the team now has some depth with free agent Tim Connolly, Mikhail Grabovski and Tyler Bozak, plus prospects Joe Colborne and Nazem Kadri.

Outside of re-signing defenceman Luke Schenn, Burke believes the players he has now will be the ones who open camp on Sept. 16.


“Right now, I’ve got nothing going,” said Burke. “This is the group we’re likely to head in with.”


Schenn’s contract talks are dragging on. Schenn’s agent, Don Meehan, said he expects to meet with the Leafs later this week.


Burke said fans shouldn’t be concerned that Schenn hasn’t yet inked a deal.


“We’ve had some discussions,” said Burke. “We remain optimistic that we’ll sign him before camp.”

I wonder if this means he could be ready to go opening night?

The last few pages from this thread... http://hfboards.com/showthread.php?t=975926 are on this topic of him being symptom free. So some good stuff to read there.

But I agree that this topic needs it's own thread.

you are underestimating how long it takes to get into game shape

i'm not sure what stage of recovery he's at now (he said on radio he's skating) but he'll have to go through heavy contact drills

i would think the leafs would give him at least a month of these to see if he's ready, to make sure the symptoms don't come back

you can't give him 1 or two real practices and be like 'ok no symptoms, throw him into the game'
i'm sure the leafs want to do things right so he's with us for a long time

i'm thinking in nov sometime would be reasonable for return, if there are no setbacks

It'll be a good boost to our lineup if Lombardi can be ready for the season. I hope we don't rush him in. Just let him take his time.
