Leafs defenseman Mark Fraser reminds us all that Ottawa is not necessarily Senators territory

The Ottawa Sun's Tim Baines reports that Toronto Maple Leafs defenseman Mark Fraser was skating with the Ottawa Senators' players at the Bell Sensplex on Thursday (as was some Alfred-something guy), and as Baines discusses Fraser's love for the Toronto Maple Leafs despite his status as a born-and-raised Ottawan, I would like to posit the reason that Senators fans are...

Toronto’s Mark Fraser Was Hit In The Face With Puck And It Looked Excruciatingly Painful

Need another reason to think that hockey is a dangerous sport? In the third period of Game 4 of the Maple Leafs and Boston Bruins series, Toronto defenseman Mark Fraser was the victim of a frightening moment.
