The Toronto Maple Leafs will have to do without Colby Armstrong for the foreseeable future.
Armstrong will need surgery after popping a tendon in his hand during Tuesday's Leafs victory over the Panthers and will miss four-to-six weeks of action.
The 27-year Armstrong left early in the first period after suffering a finger injury, and did not return.
The Lloydminster, Saskatchewan native has one goal in eight games in his first season with the Maple Leafs. He signed a three-year deal with Toronto as a free agent last summer.
Toronto has recalled Luca Caputi from the AHL Toronto Marlies to take Armstrong's spot on the roster. The Maple Leafs next play on Thursday night in Boston.
