The Toronto Maple Leafs are aiming to extend the Columbus Blue Jackets’ misery on Friday, but they have to absorb some bad news of their own.

Tyler Bozak suffered a lower-body injury and won’t return, as his team announced.

It’s not immediately clear what caused the issue, as Bozak just seemed to leave the ice after a possible tweak during the second period. Bozak tried to return in the final frame, but either the player or team decided to shut it down for the evening.

Beyond missing the rest of this game, it’s unclear how serious the issue might be.
