Leafs centre Dave Bolland hospitalized, needs surgery on cut leg

VANCOUVER - Toronto Maple Leaf centre Dave Bolland was taken to hospital to undergo surgery for a leg injury he suffered Saturday night.

Bolland's left leg was cut early in the second period of Toronto's 4-0 loss to the Vancouver Canucks.

He was injured when checked along the boards by Vancouver's Zack Kassian.

After the game Bolland was placed on a stretcher and taken to a local hospital.

Leafs coach Randy Carlyle said he didn't know the severity of the injury.

Quote of the Day

I don't think it's really truly going to sink in until we drop the puck, to be honest. I know there's going to be a lot of smoke and mirrors with the media attention and all that. We came [Monday] and it was sort of a light day to get things organized. We just want to focus in on the business aspect, the game itself. That's what we're preparing to do. Get these next couple of days out of the way and it's game on.
