Bolland was injured early in the second period of the Maple Leafs' game Saturday against the Vancouver Canucks when Canucks forward Zack Kassian accidentally stepped on the back of Bolland's leg while delivering a check.
Acquired from the Chicago Blackhawks in a June trade, Bolland has six goals, four assists and a plus-4 rating in 15 games.
Also Monday the Maple Leafs announced the club had placed center Tyler Bozak on long-term injured reserve Saturday with a hamstring injury sustained during a game against the Columbus Blue Jackets on Oct. 25.
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.
