Toronto Maple Leafs goaltender Jonas Gustavsson underwent a minor heart ablation procedure in London, Ont., on Friday. The decision to have the procedure was made after Gustavsson was examined earlier in the day by the same medical specialists who treated him in the first half of the 2009-10 season. He can begin workouts in seven days.
Gustavsson was assigned to the AHL Toronto Marlies for conditioning purposes on Feb. 4. His conditioning assignment has been suspended and he has been placed on injured reserve.
Gustavsson has played in 23 games for the Maple Leafs this season with a 6-13-2 record, a 3.29 goals-against average and a save percentage of .890. He is 2-0-0 with a GAA of 0.75 and a .966 save percentage
It's a little different but it feels amazing. A new chapter in my life and I'm excited. It's been amazing. Better than I expected. The weather is great, the place is just amazing. I can't say enough good things about it. I'm glad to get the season going.
