Arizona Coyotes forward Lawson Crouse was helped off the ice in the third period of the game against Los Angeles on Saturday.

In the third period, Crouse got tangled up with Kings defenseman Alec Martinez and tripped. Crouse ended up sliding across the ice and hitting the boards.

The Arizona Coyotes later announced that he would not return due to an “upper-body injury.”

Crouse was helped off the ice with assistance from the training staff.

Head coach Rick Tocchet said after the game that Crouse was “woozy” and was having work done.

Crouse scored the go-ahead goal for Arizona in the 15th minute of the second period to give them a 2-1 lead.

It was Crouse’s fifth goal of the season.

The Coyotes went on to beat the Kings 3-2.
