Playing in his second game of the season after a call-up from the Laval Rocket, Nikita Scherbak’s night was cut short by a lower-body injury.

He went down awkwardly along the boards, with his right leg folding underneath him. He limped to the dressing room, but did come back later in the first period.

After trying to play through it, he was eventually forced to return to the dressing room, and will not return to the game.
