Mikheyev (hand) is expected to be out long term, Kristen Shilton of TSN.ca reports.

The Maple Leafs will know more on his status Monday, but it sounds like he's going to miss at least some of the regular season. Mikheyev had a chance for a top-six role this year, but it appears Alex Kerfoot and Michael Bunting will now get a chance to fill that role in his absence. No timetable has been announced for Mikheyev's return.
