The Toronto Maple Leafs announced today that defenceman Roman Polak
will undergo season-ending hernia surgery. Polak had registered nine points in 56 games with Toronto this season. As a result, the club has recalled defenceman Petter Granberg
from the Toronto Marlies (AHL) on an emergency basis.
Granberg, 22, has been held pointless in six games with the Maple Leafs this season. The Gallivare, Sweden native has also played 35 regular season games with the Toronto Marlies, collecting 12 points (one goal, 11 assists) and 20 penalty minutes.
The Maple Leafs return to the ice tonight when they host the New York Islanders at 7:30 p.m.
