Alex Belzile will not return tonight.
Belzile had only had one shift in the first, but got a good chance at the side of the net in the middle frame. After the whistle, he was checked by Jake Muzzin, and sent flying back-first into the boards.

Belzile was getting his first shot in the NHL, hoping to impress and possible force himself into the lineup, Unfortunately for him, that debut was a very short one. He does have a history of concussion issues, so the main hope is that he won’t feel any lingering effects from this collision.
