Maple Leafs’ Robertson has season-ending surgery, Hollowell sidelined 12 weeks

Toronto Maple Leafs forward Nick Robertson had season-ending surgery on his shoulder which will require six months of recovery, the team announced.

Robertson suffered the injury on Dec. 8 against the Los Angeles Kings after he was spilled while going into a board battle with Kings defenceman Matt Roy, falling awkwardly into the boards.

The 21-year-old had two goals and three assists in 14 games as he’s bounced in and out of the Maple Leafs’ lineup this season.

After being looked at by team doctors, it was decided that he wouldn’t undergo surgery and would instead work on healing the injury through rehab. The timeline for rehab was supposed to be approximately six to eight weeks.

Defenceman Mac Hollowell will be sidelined at least 12 weeks after having surgery for a fractured kneecap.

Hollowell was injured while playing in an AHL game for the Toronto Marlies against the Manitoba Moose. The fourth-round pick from the 2018 NHL Draft has appeared in six games with the Leafs this season recording two assists and has 13 points in 18 games in the AHL.
