Toronto Maple Leafs defenseman Jake Muzzin is expected to miss a minimum of three weeks due to a lower-body injury suffered during Game 6, head coach Sheldon Keefe announced Monday, according to Sportsnet's Eric Engels.

Muzzin left Saturday's contest in the second period after appearing to pull something.

Prior to the injury, the 32-year-old led the team's defensemen in ice time this postseason. He contributed two goals and one assist through six games while also adding 16 hits and 11 blocked shots.

Keefe confirmed Rasmus Sandin will replace Muzzin, and that's the club's only lineup change after Game 6, according to TSN's Mark Masters.
