The Maple Leafs have recalled Calle Rosen from Toronto (AHL).

Rosen was acquired from the Avalanche at the trade deadline and his services will be required right away. Jake Muzzin will miss four weeks with a broken hand so Rosen or Martin Marincin will draw into the lineup on Thursday. Rosen has 15 points (3G / 12A) in 35 AHL games this season and four points (1G / 3A) in 16 career NHL games.

Muzzin will miss four weeks with a broken hand.

Muzzin was forced to leave Tuesday's game after blocking a shot and it was announced on Wednesday morning that he broke his hand. Muzzin, who the battered Maple Leafs could ill afford to lose, will miss at least one month. Four weeks will cause Muzzin to miss roughly 14 games of Toronto's remaining 18 games. Calle Rosen, who was acquired at the trade deadline, has been recalled from the AHL to replace Muzzin.

Gibson led the Ducks onto the ice for warmups.

Gibson allowed six goals on 28 shots in the Ducks loss to the Golden Knights on Sunday. Gibson has lost five of his last six starts (1-3-2) while posting a 3.36 GAA and .893 SV%. The Ducks have struggled mightily in front of him, so it's probably wise to leave him on the bench against Connor McDavid, Leon Draisaitl and the Oilers.
