Toronto Maple Leafs forward James van Riemsdyk is expected to miss six to eight weeks due to a non-displaced fracture in his left foot.

The 26-year-old left-winger has 29 points (14 goals, 15 assists) in 40 games this season.

Van Riemsdyk was a minus-three and played just under 16 minutes in Toronto's last game, a 7-0 loss at San Jose on Saturday night.

The Maple Leafs return to the ice Wednesday night against the visiting Columbus Blue Jackets.
