VANCOUVER - Toronto Maple Leafs center Dave Bolland will have surgery Saturday night after the back of his left leg was lacerated by the skate of Vancouver Canucks forward Zack Kassian in the second period of their game.

Coach Randy Carlyle said after the 4-0 loss the cut was similar to the Achilles injury suffered by Ottawa Senators defenseman Erik Karlsson last season. Karlsson missed 10 weeks.

Bolland was wheeled out of Rogers Arena on a stretcher.

"I don't know the severity or which tendon, but he did suffer a cut into that area," Carlyle said. "He will have surgery to repair that tonight."

BUFFALO -- Buffalo Sabres general manager Darcy Regier discussed his reasons for placing forward Patrick Kaleta on waivers Saturday, the same day he was eligible to return after serving a 10-game suspension for delivering a head shot to Columbus Blue Jackets defenseman Jack Johnson.

"I think there is a significant amount of work that he will have to do to redesign his game in order to give him an opportunity to play," Regier said. "When we talked about it internally, if it was with us, it had to take place in [AHL] Rochester."
