Ankle surgery sidelines Leafs' Bolland indefinitely

Toronto Maple Leafs forward Dave Bolland is out indefinitely following surgery Sunday to repair a severed tendon on the outside of his left ankle, the team announced Monday.

Dave Bolland
Center - TOR
GOALS: 6 | ASST: 4 | PTS: 10

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.

Quote of the Day

It's such a privilege to be one of these 80 great players to do this milestone, and it doesn't get better than this doing it where I started. It means a lot to me. A big thanks goes to all the players tonight who helped me to achieve that and also all the players through my career.
