CHI@MIN: Zucker leaves in 2nd with injury

2/21/16: Jason Zucker takes a hit from Michael Rozsival, forcing him to leave the game in the 2nd

MINNEAPOLIS -- Minnesota Wild forward Jason Zucker left the 2016 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series game Sunday in the second period with an upper-body injury and did not return.

Zucker left after taking a hard open-ice hit from Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Michal Rozsival at 15:14 of the second period at TCF Bank Stadium.

Rozsival hit Zucker just inside the Minnesota blue line and Zucker fell backward, hitting his head on the ice. He was attended to by trainers before being helped off the ice in a cart and went to Wild dressing room.

"He's still in the building," Wild coach John Torchetti said after the game. "So that's OK. And just upper-body [injury] for now."

Rozsival was assessed a five-minute major for interference and was given a game misconduct.

The Wild won the game, 6-1. Zucker had one shot in 5:26 of ice time.
