Boston Bruins forward Nick Foligno left Wednesday night's game against the Philadelphia Flyers early with an upper-body injury, the team announced during the third period. 


"He just pulled something." Head coach Bruce Cassidy said after the game, "Hopefully nothing serious, but (he) wasn't able to return. So that's never a good sign. So we'll see how he is tomorrow."


Boston would go on to lose the game 6-3, dropping their record on the season to 1-1-0. 

The veteran forward signed a two-year deal with Boston in July. 

Foligno, 33, played last season with the Columbus Blue Jackets and Toronto Maple Leafs, scoring seven goals and tallying 20 points in 49 games.
