Toronto Maple Leafs defenseman Mark Fraser was the victim of a scary play when Boston’s Milan Lucic’s shot nailed him in the head.

Fraser immediately fell to the ice and left a pool of blood behind when he finally skated off.

Fortunately, the initial reports were encouraging. Fraser was able to walk out of the Maple Leafs’ room, albeit with bandages on his head. He left the Air Canada Centre, presumably for a clinic or hospital, according to the Toronto Sun’s Lance Hornby.

The Maple Leafs were naturally short a defenseman for the remainder of the third period and overtime. David Krejci scored the game-winner for Boston to complete his hat trick.
