The Toronto Maple Leafs placed forward Andreas Johnsson on long-term injured reserve with a leg injury and recalled Nic Petan, Pontus Aberg, and Martin Marincin from the AHL's Toronto Marlies, the team announced Friday.

Johnsson suffered a leg injury after blocking a shot Wednesday night against the Colorado Avalanche. He'll be reassessed following the Christmas break.

The 25-year-old has lined up alongside Auston Matthews and William Nylander for the majority of the year, recording 16 points in 30 games.

Petan and Marincin have bounced between the Leafs and the Marlies throughout the season, combining for 20 games played with the big club.

Aberg signed with Toronto in the offseason but hasn't been given a shot with the Maple Leafs yet. He leads the Marlies in scoring with 24 points in 22 contests.

Toronto returns to action Saturday night in St. Louis, having collected just four wins in its last 13 games.
