Bickell was injured with 9:05 remaining in the opening period when he went hard to the net, lost his edge and went crashing into the left post, catching his left leg on the post. He was helped to the dressing room.
Coach Joel Quenneville said after the 5-1 loss that Bickell will be evaluated Wednesday.
It's not just going to happen on its own. We have to have guys commit to the areas we need to improve on. We're going to be better than last year but there is still a long way to go. But I really like the pieces and where we're headed.
