The rookie defenseman left at 11:40 of the second period in Chicago’s 4-3 win against the Oilers on Thursday after Kris Russell’s shot hit him in the head.
Carlsson has impressed many with his two-game game and earned a spot on Chicago’s second power-play unit before he exited the game. He has one assist in five NHL games since he was called up from the Rockford IceHogs in the AHL, where he led the team’s blue liners with 26 points (five goals, 21 assists) in 48 games.
Nick Seeler will draw back into the lineup for Carlsson. Dennis Gilbert, who was recalled on an emergency basis from the Rockford IceHogs in the AHL, will be a healthy scratch. Gilbert, a defensive-minded defenseman, has three points (one goal, two assists) in 20 NHL games this season and seven points (one goal, six assists) in 28 games with Rockford.
