TORONTO (AP) -Darcy Tucker is out of the Toronto Maple Leafs' lineup indefinitely with ligament damage in his right knee.

The veteran right-winger says he hurt the knee during the summer, but it was feeling better until he collided with a Chicago Blackhawk early in the third period of Toronto's 6-4 home loss Saturday.

Tucker says an MRI exam on Sunday revealed "slight damage to some ligaments." He doesn't expect he'll need surgery.
