The Toronto Maple Leafs' injury woes continue as forward Calle Jarnkrok will miss at least two weeks with a groin injury, head coach Sheldon Keefe told reporters Friday, including Sportsnet's Luke Fox.

Jarnkrok was hurt in Wednesday's game against the San Jose Sharks. He left during the second period and did not return.

The 31-year-old was recently moved into the top six alongside John Tavares and Mitch Marner. He has five goals and nine points in 25 contests this season.

Nick Robertson is set to take Jarnkrok's spot on the second line, according to TSN's Mark Masters. Wayne Simmonds draws in on the fourth line.

Jarnkrok adds to an ever-growing list of unavailable players for the Maple Leafs as Morgan Rielly, TJ Brodie, Jake Muzzin, and Jordie Benn all remain out.

Toronto faces the Tampa Bay Lightning on Saturday.
