The Toronto Maple Leafs had nothing to say in the wake of a report the Los Angeles police want to talk to defenceman Mike Komisarek about an allegation he struck a woman at a nightclub.

Komisarek did not make himself available to reporters after the Leafs' morning skate in preparation for their game Saturday night against the Washington Capitals. He did not make himself available after the game, either.

The entertainment and gossip website tmz.com has a report that a woman complained to the police that Komisarek hit her when the Leafs were in Los Angeles for a game against the Kings. The website said law-enforcement sources said the police want to speak to Komisarek "as soon as they get the chance."

According to the website, the woman said Komisarek lifted her in the air and when she asked him to put her down he refused. She said she slapped him and then alleged he punched her in the face in response. The woman claimed she went to police when Komisarek left the nightclub.

Leafs head coach Ron Wilson said he would not comment on the matter.

"No, these are rumours and innuendos on a website we don't know anything about," he said.

The Leafs also have some trouble on their roster as enforcer Colton Orr was placed on the injured-reserve list with what is thought to be a concussion. He was injured on Thursday when he fell and hit his head on the ice in a fight with George Parros of the Anaheim Ducks. Jay Rosehill was called up from the Leafs' farm team to replace Orr.

"[Orr]is having further tests to determine his injuries," Wilson said.
