He's missed the last 13 games with injury.



The Toronto Maple Leafs have been without the services of forward Calle Jarnkrok since the All-Star break when he suffered a broken knuckle; he's missed 13 games. 

They're back in action on home ice tomorrow against the Original 6 rival New York Rangers, and it's been announced that Jarnkrok is "very close" to returning. He's already participated in practice: 

He had originally suffered the injury during a practice session after he was hit in the hand by a shot from a teammate.
