"It was obviously frightening there, seeing that much blood," Tavares stated following last night's video game.
"Obviously, a guy that we care deeply about and was having a fantastic night and playing remarkable for us, so ideas are with him."
"It's terrifying," added Leafs goaltender Michael Hutchinson. "All of a sudden I might simply see a lots of blood originating from somewhere and a lot more than a typical hi-stick or anything like that. Ideally he's alright."
Mikheyev recorded his 8th goal of the year previously in that game versus the Devils. The 25-year-old novice has 23 points in 38 games this season.
The 25 year old left the ice in the third duration after being cut on his wrist by Jack Hughes' skate. He was immediately taken to University Hospital in Newark, New Jersey with what the team called a "considerable laceration" to his wrist.
Following the effective surgery, Mikheyev will now remain at the hospital for more tracking before returning to Toronto.
He is anticipated to make a full healing but a more precise timeline for his return will be provided in three months.
