Tyler Bozak injury: Maple Leafs forward out for Game 7

USA TODAY Sports

Bozak will be unavailable for Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinal.

Toronto Maple Leafs forward Tyler Bozak will not be available for Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinal against the Boston Bruins on Monday night, according to Darren Dreger of TSN on Monday afternoon.

Bozak was unavailable for Game 6 on Sunday night due to an undisclosed upper-body injury. That same injury will apparently keep him out of Game 7, as well as Dreger reports that Bozak did not travel with the team to Boston. Despite taking warmups on Sunday, Bozak was never an option to play.

Dreger was not given the specifics of what is hampering Bozak.

The Maple Leafs forward missed the final two games of the regular season due to a shoulder injury. He was available for the first game of the quarterfinal. It remains unclear whether this is the issue that has forced him to miss the final two games of the set.

Bozak is the team's top center and has recorded a 42.6 percent success rate in the face-off circle. That number is significantly down from his regular season total of 52.6 percent.
