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

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'

— Detroit Red Wings coach Mike Babcock on his interest in advanced statistical analysis
