TORONTO -- Ottawa Senators forward Dave Dziurzynski suffered a concussion Wednesday night while getting knocked out in a fight with Frazer McLaren of the Toronto Maple Leafs.

The rookie forward, playing in his 10th National Hockey League game, had to be helped off the ice after exchanging blows with McLaren 26 seconds into the game.

During the first intermission, team officials confirmed Dziurzynski was concussed and would not return.

He reportedly flew with the team for its game Friday at the New York Rangers.

Dziurzynski, 23, had two goals and 24 hits in nine games heading into Wednesday's match. He was promoted from the Binghamton Senators of the American Hockey League on Feb. 15.
