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.
The Maple Leafs have signed Jake Muzzin to a four-year contract extension worth $22.5 million ($5.625M AAV).
Muzzin was set to become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season but will now be with the Maple Leafs through the 2024 season. The 6-foot-3, 213 lbs. defenseman has scored five goals with 17 assists (22 points) while averaging 2.1 blocks and 2.1 hits per game in 52 games this season.
Muzzin (foot) is expected to be back in the Maple Leafs lineup on Monday.
Muzzin missed the last 10 games with a broken foot but is expected to play Monday in Nashville. Muzzin was recently recalled from a one-game conditioning stint with the Marlies and skated on the top-pair with Justin Holl in Sunday's practice. He will likely log massive minutes while Morgan Rielly is out and comes into play with 13 points (3G / 10A) in 38 games this season.

Muzzin is believed to be dealing with a charley horse, so you have to think he'll be available for Saturday's game in Philadelphia. Muzzin has quietly picked up nine points (3G / 6A) in 14 games this season.
Muzzin (illness) will not play vs. the Lightning.

The Maple Leafs have acquired Jake Muzzin from the Kings for Carl Grundstrom, the rights to Sean Durzi and a 2019 first-round pick.
Toronto needed to bolster their blueline and did so by adding Muzzin, who has spent the first seven seasons of his career in Los Angeles. The Maple Leafs really needed a right-handed defenseman but Muzzin was a much cheaper alternative and goes to Toronto with one more season on his contract that carries a $4.0M AAV cap-hit. Muzzin, who is 6-foot-3, 213 lbs., who can produce solid offensive numbers and play physically. He projects to play on the top-pair with Morgan Rielly, which will allow Ron Hainsey to play significantly less taxing minutes.

Muzzin (upper-body) is questionable for Game 1 vs. Vegas.
Muzzin, who missed the final five games of the regular season was on the ice for Monday’s practice in a no-contact sweater and is a big question mark for Game 1.

Muzzin has missed the last three games with an undisclosed injury but he took a regular rotation at even strength and on the power-play in Wednesday’s practice, so look for him to play tomorrow. Muzzin has had a nice year, picking up 23 points (3G / 20A), 90 shots and 80 blocked shots in 41 games.

The Kings have placed Jake Muzzin (undisclosed) on IR.
Muzzin was originally listed as questionable for tonight's game but after being placed on IR he certainly won't be in the lineup against the Predators. The Kings moved him to IR to make room for Christian Folin to be activated, so he will take Muzzin's spot in the lineup.
