Chicago Blackhawks forward Brandon Saad will not play Tuesday when the Blackhawks visit the Philadelphia Flyers (7:30 p.m. ET, NBCSN, TSN2).

Saad sustained an upper-body injury in the second period of the Blackhawks' 4-1 win against the Detroit Red Wings on Sunday and did not return to the game.

It would be the first game Saad has missed this season. The 21-year-old forward has 19 goals and 44 points, and is tied with defenseman Brent Seabrook for the team-high in plus-minus at plus-29.

Quote of the Day

I don't know how he does it. I don't know how he gets his body parallel with the player and pulls it through his legs like that. I know he's tried it a couple times in practice and it's never worked, so how he does it in a game, it's incredible.
