TORONTO (AP) — The Toronto Maple Leafs have suffered another setback on defense with the loss of Jake Muzzin to a broken hand.
The Leafs announced Wednesday that Muzzin will be out about four weeks after suffering the injury during a win over the Tampa Bay Lightning on Tuesday.
If Muzzin misses four weeks, he’ll return with six games left in the regular season.
The Leafs have recalled defenseman Calle Rosen from the American Hockey League’s Toronto Marlies to fill the roster spot. Rosen, back for his second stint in Toronto, was acquired in a trade with the Colorado Avalanche on Monday.
Toronto also is missing defensemen Morgan Rielly (foot) and Cody Ceci (ankle) because of injuries.
