TORONTO -- Leafs defenceman Mark Fraser, hit in the face with a puck, has undergone surgery to repair a fracture between the eyes and the cranial area.

Toronto coach Randy Carlyle says the burly blue-liner is resting at home and was texting and talking to his teammates Thursday morning.

Carlyle says Fraser is on the road to recovery.

Fraser, who does not wear a visor, left the ice after taking a Milan Lucic shot in a 4-3 overtime loss to the Boston Bruins on Wednesday night.

Game 5 goes Friday at Boston's TD Garden. John-Michael Liles is expected to take Fraser's place in the lineup.

The Bruins are 15-2 when leading a best-of-seven series 3-1. Toronto is 2-12-1 in its last 15 games in Boston.
