Maple Leafs place Morgan Rielly on LTIR with knee injury

The Maple Leafs will be without their three top defenceman for an extended period of time, with Morgan Rielly being the latest added to that group.

The club announced Tuesday morning that Rielly has been placed on Long-Term Injured Reserve with a knee injury, which means the veteran defenceman will be out for at least 10 games or 24 days.

Rielly hit the ice after a collision with the Islanders’ Kyle Palmieri during Toronto’s 3-2 overtime loss at Scotiabank Arena on Monday evening.

Rielly’s loss is another serious blow to an already depleted defence corps that has lost Jake Muzzin (cervical spine injury), and T.J. Brodie (oblique injury). They are also the highest paid defencemen on the Leafs roster.

Muzzin has been placed on LTIR. The club said earlier that Brodie is not progressing well enough to put a timeline on his return.

The club also announced Tuesday that it has recalled defenceman Mac Hollowell and Victor Mete from the Marlies.
