Maple Leafs defenceman Jake Muzzin to miss next two games with concussion

Maple Leafs' Sheldon Keefe gives the latest update on Jake Muzzin's recovery from his concussion, says he'll take a step back, in hopes of ramping things up after the All-Star break, but says his concern level is on par with other head injuries.

Toronto Maple Leafs defenceman Jake Muzzin remains sidelined with a concussion and will miss the team's next two games against the New Jersey Devils.

Muzzin has missed the Leafs' last four games with the injury and will look to be re-evaluated after the All-Star break.

The 32-year-old was on the receiving end of a hard hit into the end boards by St. Louis Blues forward Klim Kostin back on Jan. 15. Muzzin remained in the game after the hit and was not removed by a concussion spotter.

In 35 games this season, Muzzin has a goal and 11 points and is second on the team in ice time among skates averaging 21:22.
