Maple Leafs forward Calle Jarnkrok out week-to-week with a hand injury

Toronto Maple Leafs forward Calle Jarnkrok is out week-to-week with a hand injury.

The versatile Swede was hurt during Thursday’s 6-2 victory over the Flyers in Philadelphia.

Jarnkrok recently returned to the lineup after missing 13 games with a broken knuckle suffered in practice Jan. 26.

The 32-year-old has 10 goals and 21 points in 51 games this season.

Toronto, which has won 12 of its last 15 games, is also missing star winger Mitch Marner because of a lower-body injury suffered last week.

The Leafs (38-19-8) host the Carolina Hurricanes (40-20-6) on Saturday at Scotiabank Arena.
