Nolan Patrick, the No. 2 overall pick in this year’s NHL Draft, left Tuesday’s game versus the Anaheim Ducks after being hit into the glass during the second period.
Chris Wagner delivered the hit as Patrick went to play the puck behind the goal line. The Flyers’ rookie forward immediately went to the ice, clutching his head, and was slow getting to the bench.
There was no call on the play. The Flyers released a brief update early in the third period, saying Patrick would not return to the game.
