Toronto Maple Leafs veteran defenceman Mark Giordano is expected to miss time with an upper-body injury suffered against the Florida Panthers Tuesday, head coach Sheldon Keefe announced. 

The 40-year-old Giordano has one goal and four assists over 19 games this season with the Leafs, his third in Toronto. 

Giordano, a native of Toronto, has 156 goals and 417 assists in 1,121 games spent with the Calgary FlamesSeattle Kraken and Maple Leafs over his 18-year career. 

Marner O.K. after scare

Maple Leafs star forward Mitch Marner was able to return to Tuesday's game with a full cage after being hit in the face by an errant shot.

After leaving in the first period following the incident, Marner returned for the start of the second frame and played out the rest of the game wearing the cage.

Marner was bumped off the top line for Tuesday's game and was playing with captain John Tavares and Tyler Bertuzzi on the team's second line. 

The 26-year-old has five goals and 15 assists over 19 games with the Maple Leafs in 2023-24, his eighth season in the NHL. 

Marner has not scored since Nov. 6 and has recorded just three points in his last eight games.
