CHICAGO -- Chicago Blackhawks forward Brandon Saad has an undisclosed upper-body injury and will be re-assessed Monday.

Saad, who’s versatile enough to play either wing on any line, left Chicago’s 4-1 victory against the Detroit Red Wings on Sunday night at United Center with 7:39 remaining in the second period.

He didn’t return, and Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said he will be re-assessed Monday.

“He seemed all right here [after the game]," Quenneville said. "I don't think it's too serious, but we'll have a better idea [Monday]."

Saad, who has 19 goals and 25 assists in 68 games, didn’t have a point in 6:21 of ice time (11 shifts) Sunday.

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
