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.

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
