Chicago Blackhawks goaltender Ray Emery left in the first period of the team's game against the Edmonton Oilers on Wednesday with a lower-body injury and will not return.

The Blackhawks announced the injury via their Twitter account.

Quote of the Day

There's no discouragement in that room. There's no issues there at all to be honest with you. It's more about, 'Hey, it's opportunities for players.' And if we become that bad of a team because of one player, it's not a real good sign for our hockey club. So this is part of sports. It's part of hockey.
