Injured Maple Leafs winger Matt Frattin has been cleared for full contact at Sunday’s practice. Frattin has missed the past seven games after experiencing problems with the knee he had surgically repaired last year. “It’s still feeling good and that’s what you want to see,” Frattin said. “We’ll have the first full-contact practice (Sunday) and go from there.” Barring any setbacks, Frattin should be available for games at some point this week. Joffrey Lupul, meanwhile, also skated Saturday and was taking part in light passing drills with Frattin. Lupul, who is recovering from a broken forearm, was able to shoot the puck lightly off his backhand, but there are no signs of a return to full shooting yet. Lupul is likely another two to three weeks away from testing the injury under full shooting and contact conditions.
