Nolan Patrick left the Philadelphia Flyers game against the Anaheim Ducks on Tuesday early in the second period with an apparent upper-body injury.
General manager Ron Hextall said the Flyers will have an update on the 19-year-old center Wednesday.
Patrick, the No. 2 pick in the 2017 NHL Draft, was hit into the boards by Anaheim forward Chris Wagner in the left corner of the Philadelphia zone at 2:26 of the second. Play was stopped at 2:35 after Patrick remained down on the ice.

Wagner was not penalized.
Flyers coach Dave Hakstol didn't have a problem with the hit.
"I think it was a shoulder-to-shoulder, finished check," he said. "I'm going to look at it a little bit closer, but I don't think I need to. I saw it live and saw it quick on replay, thought it was a shoulder-to-shoulder, finished check."
