TORONTO - Tyler Bozak is out at least 7-10 days with what the team is calling a lower-body injury. The Leafs centre went for an MRI and could be out longer than that initial timeline.

Bozak's injury is yet another blow to Toronto, which is already missing wingers Joffrey Lupul (bone bruise in foot) and Nikolai Kulemin (bone chip in ankle), and defenceman Mark Fraser (knee).

The centre played 15:03 in Friday night's 5-2 loss at the Columbus Blue Jackets, recording an assist. Bozak has three goals and three assists in 11 games this season.

The results of Lupul's CT scan showed he suffered no fracture to his right foot, just a bruise. He will travel with the team out west and could play in Edmonton on Tuesday.

Forward Carter Ashton was recalled from the American Hockey League's Toronto Marlies, while winger Josh Leivo was sent down after playing Friday. Bozak's injury means Ashton and Troy Bodie, a healthy scratch against Columbus, were both set to be in the lineup.
