The 31-year-old has not played since Nov. 11 and has five assists in 14 games this season.
Klingberg joined the Maple Leafs as a free agent on July 1, signing a one-year, $4.15 million contract.
A fifth-round pick (131st overall) by the Dallas Stars at the 2010 NHL Draft, Klingberg was named to the NHL's All-Rookie Team in 2015 and was an All-Star in 2018. Internationally, he won gold with Sweden at the 2012 World Juniors and back-to-back World Championship titles in 2017 and 2018.
