Toronto defenseman Mark Fraser had surgery on Thursday to repair a broken bone after being hit in the face with a puck during Boston's 4-3 victory over the Maple Leafs in Game 4 of their first-round playoff series.

Toronto coach Randy Carlyle said Fraser was resting at home and was texting and talking to his teammates Thursday morning.

Fraser, who does not wear a visor, left the ice after being hit by Milan Lucic's shot in the overtime loss to the Bruins on Wednesday night. The Bruins can advance to the Eastern Conference semifinals with a victory in Game 5 on Friday night in Boston.

John-Michael Liles is expected to take Fraser's place in the lineup.
