Maple Leafs center Tim Connolly is expected to be sidelined 10 to 14 days because of an upper-body injury.
The team did not elaborate on the injury Monday, but Toronto coach Ron Wilson says it is unrelated to the shoulder problem that forced Connolly to miss the team's first eight games.
The most recent injury came during Saturday's 7-0 loss to the Boston Bruins.
Connolly had been centering the top line between Phil Kessel and Joffrey Lupul. He will be replaced by Tyler Bozak.
Wilson says Jonas Gustavsson is expected to start in goal against Florida on Tuesday.

I feel bad for Phil Kessel, I really do. He's leading the NHL in goals with 10 and points with 21. His team is currently first in their division with 19 points, and the Leafs actually look like they could be a playoff team for the first time since Matt Sundin was the captain and the lockout was just something fans feared "might" happen but he's still asked the same...

In the 2000 film âUnbreakableâ, a central character portrayed by Samuel L. Jackson was nicknamed âMr. Glassâ because he was born with a rare bone disease that caused him to have several breaks throughout his life. The character would break ribs if he sneezed too hard or shatter his fibula if he walked down a flight of stairs.
