Sundin out indefinitely
The Toronto Star is reporting that Mats Sundin’s freak eye injury is a broken orbital bone, and that the Leafs captain will be out indefinitely. The good news is that there is apparently no damage to his injured eye. Even more good news for Leafs fans is that the Big E had a great game on Wednesday (scoring a goal and being a decent physical presence) and is expected to take over Sundin’s 1st line duties on Saturday against Montréal.
As a Sens fan, many people would believe that Sundin’s injury was something I would like. This is totally false. I wish Mats the quickest recovery possible. This is also a great opportunity for the Leafs to call up Kyle Wellwood, probably their top forward prospect not playing with the big club this year. Here’s hoping Sundin is back soon!
