Scary moment last night as the goalie left the game late in the 3rd period.

Late in last night’s 4-2 win for the Toronto Maple Leafs over the Minnesota Wild, Leafs goaltender Frederik Andersen looked to injure his arm on a freak accident. Just moments after the Air Canada Centre’s ice crew drilled holes in the ice to repair an issue with the Leafs’ net pegs, Andersen got tangled up on a wraparound play and ended up hyperextending his arm when the pegs wouldn’t give way. We can only imagine the look of horror on the poor repair technician. 

Here’s the play:

Ouch. That doesn’t look good. Andersen ended up leaving the game, but the Leafs still managed to pull out the victory. 

Luckily, Andersen doesn’t seem to be feeling any ill effects a day later. TSN’s Kristen Shilton reported this morning that Andersen is good to go:

Breathe easy, Leafs fans. With Auston Matthews on the shelf for who knows how long, the Leafs can hardly afford to lose their starting goaltender. Bullet dodged.
