The news on injured New York Rangers forward Filip Chytil doesn’t appear to be good. He will not dress against the Ottawa Senators Wednesday night.

In the closing minutes of the loss to the New Jersey Devils Monday night, Chytil appeared to injured his shoulder as he was checking Nathan Bastian.

Chytil immediately appeared to have an issue and left the ice following the contact with Bastian.

The Rangers have not made any statement regarding the injury following the 4-2 loss to the Devils. In the game, Chytil scored his 11th goal of the season and third on the power play. His goal tied the game at 2-2 in the second period.

The rookie has had a strong season for New York. In Sunday’s 3-0 win over the Philadelphia Flyers, Chytil skated in his 74th game of the season. That ties him for the second-most by a teenager in one season in franchise history.

David Quinn said that Chytil is listed as day-to-day and might play again before the end of the season. The Rangers have two games remaining after their contest with the Senators on Wednesday at Madison Square Garden.

Friday night is their last home game of the year when they take on the Columbus Blue Jackets. On Saturday, they then visit the Pittsburgh Penguins.

The Rangers might consider to play it safe and have Chytil sit out the remainder of the season. He has scored 11 goals with 23 points this season.
