Leafs' Bozak out 7-10 days with lower-body injury, no fracture for Lupul

TORONTO - Tyler Bozak will miss the Maple Leafs' game Saturday night against the Penguins with what the team is calling a lower-body injury.

Bozak's injury is yet another blow to Toronto, which is already missing wingers Joffrey Lupul (bone bruise in foot) and Nikolai Kulemin (bone chip in ankle), and defenceman Mark Fraser (knee).

The centre played 15:03 in Friday night's 5-2 loss at the Columbus Blue Jackets, recording an assist. The Leafs had an optional morning skate Saturday morning at Air Canada Centre.

Forward Carter Ashton was recalled from the American Hockey League's Toronto Marlies, while winger Josh Leivo was sent down after playing Friday. Bozak's injury means Ashton and Troy Bodie, a healthy scratch against Columbus, were both set to be in the lineup.

Bozak has three goals and three assists in 11 games this season.

Quote of the Day

It's about enjoying the moment. It's pretty cool to get that many people together and that excited about hockey to the point they really want you to mess up. They've got a ton of red jerseys and you have to sit back and appreciate people love hockey that much and you are the one out there who gets to play the game. Just try and stick with that respect for the game and also the mentality that for me it's just about entering the fight and seeing how long I can stay in it.
