Toronto Maple Leafs place forward Smith on injured reserve with broken hand

TORONTO - The Toronto Maple Leafs placed forward Trevor Smith on injured reserve Wednesday with a broken hand.

Smith suffered the injury in the third period of Toronto's 3-1 home loss to the Florida Panthers on Tuesday night.

Quote of the Day

I don't think it's really truly going to sink in until we drop the puck, to be honest. I know there's going to be a lot of smoke and mirrors with the media attention and all that. We came [Monday] and it was sort of a light day to get things organized. We just want to focus in on the business aspect, the game itself. That's what we're preparing to do. Get these next couple of days out of the way and it's game on.
