Los Angeles Kings forward Anze Kopitar is day to day with an upper-body injury, coach Darryl Sutter told LA Kings Insider on Saturday.

Kopitar was injured in the third period of a 2-1 loss at the Ottawa Senators on Friday when he was hit by Senators defenseman Marc Methot. He briefly returned to the ice before leaving. Kopitar played 17:55 and had three shots on goal.

"He came back and tried to play," Sutter said after the game. "He's the kind of guy that's going to try to play."

Kopitar, who won the Selke Trophy as the NHL's best defensive forward last season, is traveling with the Kings for their game at the Winnipeg Jets on Sunday (2 p.m. ET; TSN3, FS-W, NHL.TV).

Kopitar, the Kings' captain, has two goals and six assists in 15 games this season.

Goalie Jeff Zatkoff did not play in the third period Friday after sustaining a lower-body injury. He made 18 saves in the first two periods in his first start since sustaining a groin injury Oct. 18. Goalie Jack Campbell was recalled from Ontario of the American Hockey League on Saturday.
