"Actually, it’s going to be for eight weeks. He broke his arm, he needs surgery," Wilson said after Toronto’s morning skate prior to Saturday night's game against Washington Capitals
at the Air Canada Centre.
Komisarek, who before the injury had been playing some of his best hockey since joining the Leafs, joins an injury list that includes No. 1 goalie James Reimer
(concussion-like symptoms) and forwards Clarke MacArthur
(upper body), Mikhail Grabovski
(lower body), Colby Armstrong
(ankle sprain) and Matthew Lombardi
(upper body). Wilson also said forward Mike Brown
is doubtful for Saturday night's game with "upper body injury."
The Leafs recalled forward Joe Colborne
from the AHL Toronto Marlies for Saturday's game. Colborne, a 2008 first-round pick by Boston who was acquired at the trade deadline in February, had 10 goals and 19 points in 13 games with the Leafs' top farm team.
