Philadelphia Flyers defenseman Nick Schultz suffered an upper body injury during the first period on Saturday in New York, the team announced.

Schultz took a big hit from Rangers’ blue liner Dylan McIlrath at 10:58 of the first period and did not return to the game.

Prior to leaving the game, Schultz had 3:44 of ice time on five shifts and registered one shot on goal.

As CSNPhilly.com’s Tim Panaccio noted, Schultz appeared wobbly following the hit likely meaning the 33-year-old suffered a concussion on the play.

Schultz has appeared in all 24 games for the Flyers, registering one assist while averaging 18:22 of ice time. He leads all Flyers defensemen in blocked shots (54).
