Halfway through the second period against the Penguins on Sunday, Chytil was carrying the puck into the offensive zone when he crashed into Pittsburgh's Evan Rodrigues. Chytil remained on the bench before departing to the locker room and did not return to the game, a 3-2 loss for the Rangers.
The 21-year-old has two goals and an assist in five games this season, his fourth with the Rangers.
Drafted in the first round (21st overall) at the 2017 NHL Draft by New York, Chytil has 28 goals and 52 points in 149 career NHL games.
