TORONTO – Toronto Maple Leafs defenceman Tomas Kaberle is expected to be out of the lineup for four weeks after breaking a bone in his right hand.
Kaberle suffered the injury in a 7-4 win over the Colorado Avalanche last Thursday.
The all-star blue-liner has 30 points (4-26) in 49 games this season.
The Leafs recalled Anton Stralman from the American Hockey League’s Toronto Marlies for Saturday’s home game against the Pittsburgh Penguins.
Stralman has recorded seven points (1-6) in 25 games with the Maple Leafs this season.
