Video: Joffrey Lupul needs help off ice after hit

Apr 4, 2013, 7:49 PM EDT

The Toronto Maple Leafs were starting to look like a deeper offensive threat as Joffrey Lupul and Nazem Kadri developed a hot streak, but Lupul might be injured again.

The winger needed help off the ice on Thursday after he collided with Philadelphia Flyers players Adam Hall and Jay Rosehill:

Update: to little surprise, the team updates that Lupul won’t return, labeling the issue an upper-body injury.

Many are worried that the 29-year-old might have a concussion.

He’s had an incredible run with Toronto since returning from forearm surgery on March 16, putting up 13 points in six games – all of which included at least a point. Of course, those numbers torment instead of impress if this ends up being serious.

    This guy can’t catch a break!
    Lets hope he is back SOON!

    The problem with Lupel is he thinks he is a tough guy, runs around like a cheap shot artist, and is made out if glass. Play like a goal scorer Jeffrey and you will live to play a other day.

    Is that a Philly steak sandwich?
    Hope Lupul is OK, he has had enough bad luck with injuries.
    Did I spell Lupul backwards again?

    That’s really a shame. He got nailed on that hit. Lupul was one of my favorites when he was in Philly, but he really seems to be snake bitten when it comes to injuries. Hopefully it’s not a serious concussion.

    Lupul is a glassy guy. Uhhh I mean a classy guy, yeah a classy guy. All jokes aside I wish the best to Joff .

    Given that he is a cheap shotter, a few months off could work wonders.
