Toronto Maple Leafs centre Frederik Gauthier is slated to miss the next two games with a foot injury, the team announced Monday.

Gauthier, 23, will remain in Toronto as the club embarks on a road trip starting Tuesday with back-to-back games in Nashville and Buffalo, respectively.

The club says the 2013 first-round pick (21st overall) will be re-evaluated Thursday.

Gauthier has three goals and nine assists in 62 games for the Leafs this season.
