Philadelphia Flyers defenseman Michael Del Zotto was forced to leave Wednesday’s game against the Colorado Avalanche after taking a skate to the side of the face early in the first period.

The injury, which occurred after he got tangled up with Daniel Briere heading into the corner, comes after Del Zotto was scratched in the last nine games.

Updated: According to Tim Panaccio of CSN Phildelphia, Del Zotto was back on the Flyers’ bench at the start of the second period.
