Toronto Maple Leafs defenseman Mark Giordano is sidelined week-to-week with a broken finger, head coach Sheldon Keefe confirmed to reporters on Thursday.

Giordano sustained the injury on Tuesday in the Maple Leafs' 2-1 shootout victory against the Florida Panthers.

The 40-year-old is the oldest active player in the NHL. He has five points in 20 games while playing 17:52 per contest.

Giordano's injury takes from an already depleted Maple Leafs blue line. Timothy Liljegren hasn't played since Nov. 2, while John Klingberg was placed on long-term injured reserve on Nov. 23.

Toronto recalled defenseman Max Lajoie from the AHL's Marlies before announcing Giordano's absence. The 26-year-old has five assists in 14 contests with the Marlies and played one game with the Maple Leafs earlier this season.

The Maple Leafs face the Seattle Kraken on Thursday.
