Maple Leafs centre Mikhail Grabovski out two weeks with lower-body injury

TORONTO - The Toronto Maple Leafs will have to do without Mikhail Grabovski for a little while.

The team announced Wednesday that the centre will miss the next two weeks with a lower-body injury.

Grabovski left late in the third period of Tuesday's 3-2 shootout loss to the Phoenix Coyotes after a collision at centre ice.

The Leafs will also be without winger Clarke MacArthur when they visit the Nashville Predators on Thursday. He didn't play in the third period Tuesday after suffering an upper-body injury.

Meanwhile, Leafs coach Ron Wilson expects centre Tim Connolly to make his return against Nashville after recovering from an upper-body injury.
