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

The old saying in hockey is 'weather the storm.' I put the notion in their heads that we don't want to weather the storm, we want to push just as hard and matched their work ethic. I thought our guys exceeded that in the first period.
