Artem Anisimov (upper body) won't play Tuesday night.

Artem Anisimov left Saturday night's game against St. Louis in the first period with an upper-body injury.

It is not clear how Anisimov got injured and how severe the injury is. All that Chicago coach Joel Quenneville had to say after the game is that Anisimov was day-to-day. There is a strong chance that Anisimov will not play Sunday against the Sharks. We recommend you play it safe and replace him on Sunday if you have a reasonable backup player.

"He scored some goals for us early last year and this year he continues to have a big start. I can't say enough good things because it's not just scoring. He does so many good things for us." Anisimov is on pace for more personal bests with 13 goals and 26 points through 30 games this season.
