The Toronto Maple Leafs will be without another two forwards for the foreseeable future.
In a statement made Saturday afternoon, the club announced that Ilya Mikheyev (wrist) and Trevor Moore (concussion) have been placed on injured reserve. With Andreas Johnsson (leg) on the IR as well, the Leafs are currently missing three forwards from their regular lineup.

Mikheyev, who has recorded 23 points in 39 games this season, will be out of the Leafs’ lineup for at least the next three months.
