will not play Monday night against the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden.
Korpikoski sustained the injury during the morning skate. While practicing odd-man rushes, the 27-year-old was hit in the head by an errant pass that deflected off a teammate's stick. He quickly headed for the dressing room and did not return to practice.
In 55 games this season, Korpikoski has nine goals and 24 points. He won a bronze medal with Finland at the 2014 Sochi Olympics, scoring two goals and four points in six games.
Well, for me this one's concerning, the way we performed. Because three games in, playing a desperate team on the road, I was expecting something else than this. Right now, I'm just disappointed. The other games, I thought we did some things that you can build off your game. There wasn't a lot accomplished in tonight's game.
