Alexei Ponikarovsky Held Out Of Toronto Lineup

Toronto Maple Leafs forward Alexei Ponikarovsky may not be a member of that team for long. On the eve of the trade deadline, Ponikarovsky has been held out of the Leafs lineup, according to Nick Kypreos of Roger's Sportsnet.

Reports said that Ponikarovsky left practice with a bit of a limp on Tuesday, but Leafs broadcasters have assured tonight that he's not injured. So, they could be holding him out as a precaution because they're trying to finalize a deal for him, or he could be out of the lineup because he's already about to be traded.

We'll keep you updated as the story unfolds.
