The Detroit Red Wings had just welcomed Anthony Mantha back to the lineup last week, and now they're going to be without him again.
Late in Saturday night's game against the Toronto Maple Leafs, he was injured after his head crashed into the ice while being wrestled down by Toronto's Jake Muzzin.
The team has already ruled him out of Sunday's game against the Arizona Coyotes.

A blow to the head is never a good thing. Here's hoping Mantha's long-term health isn't affected by this.
