ST. PAUL, Minn. -- Minnesota Wild goaltender Niklas Backstrom left Wednesday night's game against Toronto in the first period with an apparent injury.

Starting his first game since Oct. 28, Backstrom was run over by Toronto's Nazem Kadri 7 minutes into the game, and lay flat on the ice for about 30 seconds before slowly sitting up. Kadri's elbow appeared to hit Backstrom in the head.

Backstrom stayed in the game until a timeout with 10:31 left in the period before skating to the bench and heading to the dressing room. He had three saves.

The team has not provided any updates.

Backstrom was replaced by Josh Harding, who was to have the night off because of an illness.
