TORONTO -- Toronto Maple Leafs center Auston Matthews was scratched from Sunday's game against the Edmonton Oilers because of an upper-body injury.

Matthews was involved in a collision late in the third period of the win over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Saturday but Maple Leafs coach Mike Babcock indicated that the 20-year-old was fine.

Before the game Sunday, Babcock said: "He's one of those guys with bumps and bruises here today. We'll go through it. We've had a couple of guys that are -- you know, it's the season. You're playing hockey. You see who's available at game time."

Matthews has 13 goals and 13 assists in 26 games. Last month, Matthews also missed four games with an upper-body injury.
