Sports Injury Alert:
Toronto Maple Leafs forward Dave Bolland left Saturday night’s game with a leg injury. As per the team’s official Twitter account, head coach Randy Carlyle announced after the game that Bolland has a cut on his leg and will have surgery tonight. The gritty forward left early in the second period after suffering a laceration near his left ankle after a hit against the boards by Vancouver Canucks forward Zack Kassian. The entire sequence looks like a routine hit, and the injury seems purely accidental. Do not expect any supplementary discipline for Kassian.
Bolland has played in all 15 of the team’s games so far this season. He has six goals, 4 assists, is a plus-4, and averaging over 16 minutes per game. He gets both penalty kill and powerplay minutes for the Leafs. This is a big loss for the team.
The hit and the injury are very reminiscent of the Erik Karlsson injury last season, which saw him miss a few months of action. Hopefully for Bolland and the Leafs, the news will be better.
