TORONTO Toronto Maple Leafs defenseman Mark Fraser was hit in the face by a slap shot off the stick of Boston Bruins left wing Milan Lucic at 7:49 of the third period with the score tied 3-3 Wednesday night in Game 4 of their Eastern Conference Quarterfinal at Air Canada Centre.

Fraser, who played 10:07 in the first two periods then helped kill off a four-minute Boston power play early in the third, was immediately taken to the dressing room by the Toronto training staff.

Coach Randy Carlyle said during his postgame remarks that Fraser was taken to the hospital to have a CT scan that would check for fractures or broken bones in his face.

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
