Tampa Bay Lightning forward Brayden Point exited Game 7 against the Toronto Maple Leafs after suffering an apparent leg injury late in the first period.

Point got tangled up along the boards and immediately hobbled off the ice without putting any pressure on his right leg.

Point returned for a shift in the second period but was unable to continue. He sat back on the bench after a brief stint on the ice and was visibly emotional.

The 26-year-old has been one of Tampa Bay's most dominant players this series, scoring the overtime winner in Game 6 on Thursday. He's recorded two goals and two assists so far in the first round.
