(TSX / STATS) -- 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."
