Leafs place Komarov on IR (Updated)
The Toronto Maple Leafs have placed forward Leo Komarov on injured reserve and recalled goaltender Christopher Gibson from the American Hockey League’s Toronto Marlies.
Komarov has been sidelined with a concussion since taking a hit from Capitals captain Alexander Ovechkin on Nov. 29.
The 27-year-old forward has four goals and 16 points in 23 games this season.
The move was made, in part, to free up a roster spot to recall Gibson.
Gibson, 22, is 6-9-2 with a 2.52 G.A.A. and a .919 save percentage in 17 AHL games this season.
