The game will close a season-high seven-game road trip for the Maple Leafs, who lost 3-1 at the Minnesota Wild on Friday. The loss was Toronto's sixth in its past eight games (2-6-0).
After returning home to Air Canada Centre for two games next week, the Maple Leafs will begin a stretch of nine of their next 11 games on the road.
With an arrival in Winnipeg early Saturday, Toronto held a lightly attended optional morning skate. At 3.23 goals per game, the Maple Leafs enter play Saturday with the highest-scoring offense in the NHL, but they will be without center Nazem Kadri and left wing Joffrey Lupul. Each player is out with a lower-body injury. Center Peter Holland has an upper-body injury and will not play Saturday.
