Toronto Maple Leafs forward Auston Matthews will be out at least four weeks with a left shoulder injury, the team announced Monday.

Matthews, 21, will be placed on injured reserve.

He was injured Saturday in the second period of the Leafs’ win over Winnipeg when he took a hit from Jets defenseman Jacob Trouba.

In 11 games this season, Matthews has 10 goals and six assists. A right shoulder ailment limited him last season to 62 games, but he posted 34 goals and 29 assists.

Toronto (8-3-0) is in first place in the Atlantic Division.
