Latest report on Jake Muzzin isn't encouraging

This doesn't bode well.

Leafs Feed

The good news is that the Toronto Maple Leafs were able to get back into the win column thanks to last night's 3-2 overtime victory at home over the Dallas Stars; rookie forward Nick Robertson played the hero as he tallied twice in the victory, including the OT game winning goal. 

However, the bad news is that they were without the services of defenseman Jake Muzzin, as he remains out of the lineup after having suffered a neck injury earlier this week in their loss against the Arizona Coyotes.

According to head coach Sheldon Keefe, there isn't an update on his status.

Muzzin is in the midst of a four year contract that carries an $5.625 million cap hit. So far in three games this season, he's registered one assist. 

In the meantime, the Leafs have called up Filip Kral from the American Hockey League affiliate Toronto Marlies to take Muzzin's place on the roster. The Marlies have also signed veteran defenseman Danny DeKeyser to a professional tryout.
