from James Mirtle of the Globe and Mail,
So far, however, all Lebda has become is the Leafs’ forgotten man on the blueline. The 28-year-old has been a healthy scratch for three consecutive games since being benched after his giveaway led to a goal early in a win last week over the Nashville Predators.
After 10 games as a Leaf, Lebda is a team-worst minus-9 and has fallen behind two youngsters with more than 300 fewer games NHL experience.
Instead of a new beginning, his start in Toronto has been a bit of a nightmare.
“It’s frustrating,” Lebda said. “Just this whole start of the year has been like that. Getting hurt in training camp, missing the first two, three weeks and trying to get back in game shape without those exhibition games.
“Now I’m in a hole and hopefully I get a chance here to climb out of it.”
