Tampa Bay Lightning's center Tyler Johnson did not return for the rest of the third period of Tuesday night's game against the Chicago Blackhawks.

Johnson took a cross-check to the midsection from Blackhawks defenseman Brent Seabrook. According to Pro Hockey Talk, Seabrook was assessed a minor penalty for cross-checking on the play. Johnson had his head up as he tried to grab the puck from mid air, when Seabrook met him with a devastating hit to the ribs. Johnson underwent further evaluation Tuesday night with a lower-upper-body injury. General Manager Steve Yzerman said that Johnson is considered day-to-day, according to Tampa Bay Times. There is still no word on his estimated return.

Johnson is currently Tampa Bay's top point producer with five goals and 18 points through 15 games.
