Blackhawks forward Kirby Dach suffered an apparent injury in the third period of Team Canada's 1-0 exhibition win vs. Russia on Wednesday at the 2021 IIHF World Junior Championship.

Dach, who's serving as the team captain, appeared to have injured his right wrist after colliding with a Russian player at center ice. He immediately went to the locker room and did not return.

Canada head coach André Tourigny said after the game that Dach is getting X-rays and undergoing further tests to determine the severity of the injury.

Here's a video of the play:

The Blackhawks begin training camp on Jan. 3 and Dach was expected to play for Canada the entire tournament, which wraps up on Jan. 5.
