Toronto Maple Leafs F Matt Frattin will be out a week with a knee injury. Frattin's injury is a flare-up of MCL issues that requires a procedure.
The 25-year-old has been strong so far this season, recording seven goals and 10 points in 10 games.
The procedure is required to clean up some damage left from the reconstructive cartilage surgery he had on his left meniscus in May.
Jay McClement took Frattin's place on the third line in practice on Wednesday.
