Sunrise, FL (SportsNetwork.com) - Montreal Canadiens forward Max Pacioretty left Sunday's game against the Florida Panthers after hitting his head.
Early in the first period, Pacioretty was checked by Florida defenseman Dmitry Kulikov and hit his head against the boards. He appeared to be shaken as he was helped off the ice by a trainer.
The team said between periods that he would not return to the game.
Kulikov was called for interference on the play.
