Maple Leafs place Clarkson on injured reserve
The Toronto Maple Leafs have placed forwards David Clarkson and Frazer McLaren on injured reserve.

The Toronto Maple Leafs have placed forwards David Clarkson and Frazer McLaren on injured reserve.

Tom Gulitti of The (Bergen) Record reports Clarkson said Sunday, when his former team the New Jersey Devils was in town to face the Maple Leafs, that he would have to miss some time to get a bursa sac in his elbow removed.

Clarkson played that night and each of Toronto's following two games, but he hasn't recorded a point since Dec. 23. In his first season with the Maple Leafs after signing a seven-year, $37 million contract, he has three goals, eight points and 51 penalty minutes in 36 games.

McLaren has played in 22 games this season, just two since Dec. 16, and is scoreless with 67 penalty minutes.

Quote of the Day

I downplayed the first one because I thought it's just a hockey game. We just want to win the game; it's against our rival and we want the two points. I downplayed it, but now having gone through the first one I look back and say, 'Geez, that was really cool.' I think as I've grown a bit older I've got a lot more appreciation for what we're allowed to do every day.
