The Philadelphia Flyers will be without centre Nolan Patrick for the next 7-10 days due to an upper-body injury, the team announced Thursday.

Patrick, 20, left Wednesday’s game against the Ottawa Senators after only skating 3:30 over five shifts and didn’t return. It’s unclear how Patrick was injured in the game.

The 2017 second-overall pick has yet to pick up a point in four games with the Flyers this season.
