The Maple Leafs might be getting some of their injured bodies back soon.

Defenceman Brendan Bell worked out with the Leafs at their morning skate in New Jersey yesterday and, as far as coach Paul Maurice is concerned, he is ready to play. He needs medical clearance first, which is expected today at Toronto, and he'll likely be in the lineup tomorrow night against Calgary.

"All those injured defenceman are healing as fast as they can because they know it's there for them if they can get back and healthy," Maurice said.

Forwards Nik Antropov (leg) and Ben Ondrus (bruised ribs) are both expected to begin skating again today as well. Maurice said Staffan Kronwall, who has a sprained ankle, is likely "a few days" from returning to the ice.

Defender Andy Wozniewski had surgery on his separated shoulder yesterday and is expected to be out about four months.

"The surgery went well," GM John Ferguson said. "He'll stay there (in Alabama) for a couple of days for post-op follow-up. Then he'll begin the long rehabilitation process."

NO SWEAT STEEN: Toronto forward Alex Steen isn't down on himself even though he went the entire pre-season and first four regular-season games without a goal.
