The Philadelphia Flyers could be without defenseman Michael Del Zotto when they host the Minnesota Wild Thursday night.

Del Zotto left Wednesday’s contest in New York after his first shift of the third period.

As you see in the video, he went down to take a way a 2-on-1 pass from Derek Stepan. Del Zotto left the game following that shift and did not return.

Post-game, Flyers’ coach Craig Berube said the blue liner suffered a lower body injury.

The injury could force Luke Schenn (shoulder) or Andrew MacDonald (knee) into action against the Wild.

Del Zotto, who has two goals and eight points in 16 games this season while averaging over 21 minutes of ice time per game, was a minus-1 with two blocked shots in 16:09 of ice time in the 2-0 loss to the Rangers.
