Contrite Kapanen back for Leafs tonight — Toronto Sun

By LANCE HORNBY

On a day the Maple Leafs brought the mentors in their lives to town, Kasperi Kapanen shifted uncomfortably in the spotlight of his one-game team suspension.

After 48 hours to think about missing the start of Friday’s practice which he over-slept for — coach Sheldon Keefe called it “a pattern” of such incidents — Kapanen faced the media Monday morning before returning to the lineup against the Florida Panthers.

“It’s not me not caring,” Kapanen said. “It’s just an honest mistake and it happens. I just have to own up to it. It (being forced to watch Saturday’s win over Ottawa from the press box) is something I deserved.

“I just overslept. Obviously, I don’t want my teammates to think that I’m not serious about this or what not, and they sat me out, and that’s that.”

Kapanen admitted the same practice tardiness happened once with the Marlies, and though his old farm coach Keefe could not recall the specific incident, the latter was more concerned that it’s happened a couple of times at the NHL level.

MAPLE LEAFS AT FLYERS PREGAME NOTES: Kasperi Kapanen has a goal and an assist in two games against Philadelphia this season.- Leads the Maple Leafs in points recorded on the road this season (6 goals, 7 assists).
