Columbus Blue Jackets forward Artem Anisimov left with 9:10 remaining in the third period of a game against the Toronto Maple Leafs at Air Canada Centre on Monday night with an apparent upper-body injury.

Anisimov was carrying the puck through the neutral zone when he was hit by Maple Leafs defenseman Dion Phaneuf. Anisimov quickly headed for the dressing room and appeared to be favoring his right arm.

Phaneuf was assessed a two-minute penalty for an illegal check to the head.

Quote of the Day
