Toronto Maple Leafs forward Joffrey Lupul will be out at least six weeks after suffering a fractured right forearm on Wednesday against Pittsburgh.

Lupul was hit by a shot from teammate Dion Phaneuf during the Leafs' 5-2 victory over the Penguins.

Matt Frattin was recalled from the AHL Toronto Marlies on Thursday to take Lupul's spot on the roster. Frattin is expected to play when the Leafs host the New York Islanders at the Air Canada Centre.
