Tampa Bay Lightning centre Anthony Cirelli is week-to-week with an upper-body injury, the team announced Saturday.

Cirelli was injured late in Thursday’s loss to the Flordia Panthers and was unable to finish the contest.

After the game, head coach Jon Cooper said “It didn’t look great when he came off,” suggesting Cirelli would need to miss some games.

The 23-year-old has four goals and 10 points in 12 games this season.
