Leafs’ Andersen to return after 4-game absence

Maple Leafs goaltender Frederik Andersen will return Thursday against the Dallas Stars after missing Toronto’s last four games with a neck injury.

Andersen has not played since suffering the injury on Feb. 3 against the Florida Panthers. He initially was checked for a concussion before ultimately being diagnosed with the neck injury.

Andersen, 30, is 24-9-6 with a 2.87 goals-against average and a .910 save percentage in 42 games this season.

The Maple Leafs also waived reserve goaltender Michael Hutchinson on Thursday.
