Fraser Suffers Facial Fracture

Toronto Maple Leafs defenseman Mark Fraser suffered a facial fracture between the eyes and cranial area after getting hit in the face with a puck last night. Fraser doesn’t wear a visor and was struck by a Milan Lucic slap shot.

The scary incident left everyone concerned, but Randy Carlyle said Fraser has already undergone surgery and is resting at home today. The blueliner had a solid season with the Leafs after recording eight points to go along with a plus-18 rating.

The Bruins now lead the series 3-1 and Game 5 will take place on Friday back in Boston. John-Michael Liles is expected to take Fraser’s place in the lineup in the win-or-go-home game for Toronto.
