Nick Robertson leaves Toronto Maple Leafs game with shoulder injury

The Toronto Maple Leafs have announced that Nick Robertson will not complete Thursday’s game against the Los Angeles Kings due to a shoulder injury.

The hit came midway through the first period. Robertson was hit by Kings defenseman Matt Roy, and Robertson hit the boards hard near the Toronto net. Roy received a penalty for interference on the play.

It is unclear how long he will be missing at this time.

Jason Robertson’s younger brother, Nick has been in and out of training since the start of the season. He has five points in 14 games with the Leafs and two more points in two AHL games with the Toronto Marlies. Robertson has seven points in 30 games over four seasons since being drafted 53rd overall in 2019.

Robertson is no stranger to high-profile injuries. He suffered an undisplaced fracture to his right fibula last season that limited him to just 38 games between the NHL and AHL. In 2020-21, he suffered a knee injury on his debut which limited him to just 27 games between the two leagues.

It was Robertson’s third game in Toronto’s top six as he looks to become a regular in the roster. Standing at 5ft 10in, he doesn’t play a physical game but relies more on his blend of speed and skill.
