Steen, Boyce out of Maple Leafs lineup with shoulder injuries

TORONTO - The injuries continue to mount for the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Forwards Alex Steen and Darryl Boyce each sustained shoulder injuries in Thursday's loss to Washington and will be out of the team's lineup after the all-star break.

Steen has a right shoulder separation and will miss 10-14 days while Boyce separated his left shoulder and is out indefinitely.

The 23-year-old Steen has 10 goals and 24 points in 50 games for the Maple Leafs this season. Boyce was making his NHL debut when he was injured against the Capitals.

Toronto is already without forward Alex Ponikarovsky, who is expected to miss six weeks with a dislocated right shoulder.
