The Toronto Maple Leafs’ injury woes continue as forward Alexander Kerfoot will be out indefinitely after undergoing surgery for dental fractures.

The injury was sustained on Nov. 5 against Los Angeles, presumably on this hit from Jeff Carter.

Kerfoot reported ongoing discomfort while the team was on the road in New York, and consultation testing determined that surgery was required to repair the damage. The 25-year-old has tallied five goals and three assists in 20 games since he was acquired from the Colorado Avalanche this summer in a trade that also included Tyson Barrie.
