Report: Lupul out with broken forearm

Toronto, ON (Sports Network) - Toronto Maple Leafs forward Joffrey Lupul suffered a fractured forearm in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins.

TSN of Canada cited Leafs head coach Randy Carlyle's update following the game. Lupul departed in the second period and did not return after bearing the brunt of a slash by Penguins defenseman Brooks Orpik. Additional reports cite it was a shot from teammate Dion Phaneuf which caused the damage.

The setback comes just three days after the Leafs rewarded Lupul with a five- year extension through the 2017-18 season.
