Vancouver, BC (SportsNetwork.com) - Toronto Maple Leafs center Dave Bolland was to have surgery after his leg was cut during Saturday's game against the Vancouver Canucks.
"I don't know the degree of severity or which tendon (was cut) but he did suffer a cut to that area and he will have surgery to repair that tonight," said Maple Leafs coach Randy Carlyle.
Bolland was checked against the boards in the second period by Vancouver's Zack Kassian, whose skate appeared to make contact with the lower part of Bolland's left leg.
Bolland didn't put weight on his leg as he was helped off the ice. He has six goals and four assists this season.
Kassian scored soon after the hit and the Canucks won the game 4-0, beating the Maple Leafs for the 11th straight time.
