Joffrey Lupul apologized Wednesday for a since-deleted Instagram caption in which he said the Maple Leafs "cheat", a comment apparently related to his failed physical with the National Hockey League team. Lupul underwent sports hernia surgery in February 2016 and has been unable to pass a physical since then, first before last season and again ahead of camp this year.

"I responded earlier this week to some negative comments on Instagram".

"It's been extremely tough not being able to play over the past 1.5 years. I apologize to the media, fans, Leafs organization, and most of all my teammates for this unneeded distration", Lupul posted.

Lupul posted a photo on Instagram on Sunday of what appeared to be him snowboarding, with the comments, "Haha failed physical?" They cheat, everyone lets them", and "I'm ready. "Just awaiting the call".

He later deleted the comments.

Lupul, 33, is under contract through the end of this season but hasn't played since the 2015-16 season because of various injuries.

He has 205 goals and 215 assists in 701 career games.
