Hornqvist (upper-body) will not play on Saturday.
Hornqvist was forced to leave Thursday’s game and will not be available on Saturday, despite taking part in the morning skate. Juuso Riikola will likely dress as a seventh defeseman with Hornqvist out and Phil Kessel will move into the top-6.
DeBrusk (undisclosed) is not expected to play this weekend.
DeBrusk missed Saturday’s morning skate and is not expected to play vs. the Maple Leafs on Saturday. With DeBrusk out, Gemel Smith is expected to make his Bruins debut and David Backes is expected to move to the second line.
Wilson (concussion) is expected to miss his second straight game.
Wilson missed the Capitals morning skate and is expected to miss Saturday’s game in Columbus. Wilson remains day-to-day, so monitor his status heading into next week.

Couturier is listed as day-to-day with a lower-body injury so he will not play in Buffalo this afternoon. Either Jordan Weal or Phil Varone, who was recalled on Friday, will replace Couturier in the lineup.

The Senators have placed Matt Duchene (lower-body) on IR.
The Senators have yet to provide a detailed injury report on Duchene, who was hurt in Thursday’s game against Montreal. His move to IR means that he will miss at least one week, so the Senators recalled Nick Paul from Belleville (AHL) to replace him on the active roster.
