Maple Leafs forward Nazem Kadri is dealing with a sprained left knee that will keep him out of the line up for the next three to four weeks.

He was not on the ice at the team's practice Wednesday morning and underwent an MRI later in the day.

In other Leafs' injury news, centre Mikhail Grabovski says he feels fine after taking a hard hit from Ottawa's Chris Neil during the third period of last night's 5-3 win over the Senators.

He was slow to get up from the collision with Neil and looked a little woozy leaving the ice. He did return to the game several minutes later though.

Following the hit, Grabovski visited with doctors' as per the league's concussion policy and was deemed to be okay. Grabovski finished the game with a goal and two assists in the win.

There is no word yet whether or not Neil will receive any supplementary discipline for the hit but none is expected.

Leafs' coach Ron Wilson also revealed after last night's game that forward Phil Kessel is dealing with a minor groin injury.

Wilson said that he was not planning on playing Kessel last night but with others also battling injuries Kessel was forced into duty.
