BOSTON (CBS) – Boston Bruins forward Daniel Paille will undergo surgery on his broken nose Wednesday.

“Daniel Paille has been diagnosed with a broken nose and facial lacerations after the injury he sustained in our game Monday night. He will undergo surgery on Wednesday, November 9 at Mass General Hospital in Boston to repair the injury,” Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli said in a release Tuesday. “Dr. Thomas Dodson will conduct the procedure. Following the surgery, he is expected to be listed as day-to-day.”

Paille took a slapshot to the face off the stick of Islanders defenseman Steve Staios in Monday night’s 6-2 win over New York. The puck hit Paille in the face-shield, preventing any further injury.
