Gustavsson to see cardiac specialist

TORONTO -- Toronto Maple Leafs goalie Jonas Gustavsson has returned to Toronto and is scheduled to see a cardiac specialist.

Gustavsson's return Wednesday came a day after he was taken to the hospital with an elevated heart rate following the first period of Toronto's 3-0 victory over the Montreal Canadiens.

Toronto took the precautionary move Tuesday night because the Swedish rookie needed minor heart surgery during training camp following a similar incident.

Toronto general manager Brian Burke said the Leafs are "just being ultra-cautious."

Gustavsson was examined at a Montreal hospital on Tuesday night and released.

The team said it would update his condition on Thursday.
