Fan590 is reporting that Jonas Gustavsson has been placed on IR with a groin pull. Joey MacDonald has been called up on emergency recall (doesn't have to clear waivers).

It's estimated that Gustavsson will be out for at least one week.

blurr update - Hot off the presses, the Canadian Press is now reporting the same:

The Toronto Maple Leafs placed Jonas Gustavsson on injured reserve Thursday morning with a groin injury and recalled fellow goaltender Joey MacDonald from the Toronto Marlies of the AHL.

Gustavsson, nicknamed The Monster, is expected to miss at least one week.

PPP Update: Chemmy and I have been tossing around ideas on how to deal with this news. Here is what we have:

How to commit suicide quickly and without a lot of fanfare

  1. Cut femoral artery in a hot tub
  2. Jump off of a bridge into ottawa traffic
  3. The Wellwood - Try to eat as much as Kyle Wellwood
