The $9.5-million US centre will be out of action for up to 10 days and possibly as long as two weeks, Leafs coach Ron Wilson said after practice on Monday.
Connolly missed the first eight games of the season with a cracked bone in his shoulder. In six games, he has one goals and three assists.
“He got an upper-body injury that is totally unrelated to the other injury,” Wilson said. “He was hurt in the game (the 7-0 loss to Boston). Got hurt in the first penalty kill, left the ice for a bit, felt OK. Played regular (shift) in the game, and I did not think about it until I got the e-mail yesterday that he is going to be out.”
