Ankle surgery sidelines Leafs' Bolland indefinitely
Toronto Maple Leafs forward Dave Bolland is out indefinitely after having surgery to repair a severed tendon in his left ankle

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
SOG: 27 | +/-: 4
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

I had one really not-good game. I came back to the hotel and he [his father] was on Skype. My mother called first and said, 'Your father wants to talk to you.' So he moved my mother away, and he yelled at me for like 30 seconds. I understood him, and then he said, 'I'm done.' And he was gone. The next game I got my first shutout.
