Maple Leafs forward Joffrey Lupul will miss three weeks after breaking his hand, Toronto head coach Randy Carlyle told reporters before Saturday's game

Carlyle said Friday that Lupul fell during practice Thursday and an X-ray showed a fractured bone. Lupul will wear a cast for 10 days, Carlyle said Saturday. 

Lupul, an alternate captain, was sixth on the team in scoring last season with 44 points. He has three points in nine games thus far this season. He is third among Leafs forwards in average ice time.

Canucks' Alexandre Burrows suspended three games for check​

The Maple Leafs also announced Saturday they called up Sam Carrick from their AHL affiliate and reassigned Stuart Pearcy to the AHL.

The Leafs are sixth in the Atlantic division with 11 points (5-4-1).
