Toronto Maple Leafs forward Andreas Johnsson missed practice Friday and will not play Saturday because of a lower-body injury, head coach Mike Babcock said.
The injury is not considered serious.
Johnsson took a knee-on-knee hit from Brayden McNabb early in the second period during Thursday's contest with the Vegas Golden Knights. McNabb was called for kneeing on the play.
Prior to Johnsson's exit, he had a goal in 5:32 of ice time. He required help to get down the tunnel and appeared to struggle putting weight on his left knee.
In 51 games so far this season, Johnsson has 15 goals and 16 assists. The 24-year-old will be a restricted free agent this summer.
With the opening in the lineup, forward Tyler Ennis draws back in for the first time since breaking his ankle on Dec. 22. Ennis was activated off the injured reserve list last week but has not played since. He has 11 points in 33 games with the big club this season.
The Leafs will be back in action Saturday night against the Arizona Coyotes.
