Closer to return? Leafs' Sundin cleared to practice
The center's left orbital bone was fractured when he was struck by a puck Oct. 5 in the season opener against Ottawa. He was re-evaluated Monday and was given the OK to resume practicing with the team beginning Tuesday.
Sundin had been experiencing "cloudy" vision after getting hit in the face by a flying puck on opening night against the Ottawa Senators. It resulted in a broken lower orbital bone.
The Maple Leafs are still not giving a specific timetable for Sundin's return to game action.
