Leafs place Ashton (hand) on IR

To make room for David Clarkson in the Leafs lineup tonight, the team put forward Carter Ashton on injured reserve with a hand issue.

This season has been a tough one for the 29-year-old power forward. He missed the first 10 games of the season due to a suspension and received another two-game suspension in December. He has scored three goals and has eight points in 36 games.

Clarkson signed a seven-year, $36.75 million deal as a free agent in July.
