Maple Leafs’ Andersen leaves game after taking skate to head

Watch as Corey Perry drives the net, gets tripped up and inadvertently kicks Frederik Andersen in the head with his skate.

Toronto Maple Leafs goaltender Frederik Andersen left Monday’s game against the Anaheim Ducks after taking a skate to the face area.

Ducks forward Corey Perry collided with Andersen with just over six minutes remaining in the second period, clipping the netminder with his skate as he fell to the ice.

Andersen stayed down on the ice temporarily before skating off under his own power.

Curtis McElhinney replaced Andersen in goal. The Maple Leafs went on to win the game 7-4.

Toronto is expected to update Andersen’s status Tuesday.
