Winnipeg Jets rookie forward Patrik Laine has been diagnosed with a concussion following a hit delivered by Buffalo's Jake McCabe on Saturday, head coach Paul Maurice announced.

No timetable has been set for Laine's return to the lineup.

The hit, seen below, occurred in open ice and sparked a line brawl between the Jets and Sabres.

The 2016 second overall draft pick leads all rookies with 37 points through 42 games, and is tied with Auston Matthews in rookie goals with 21 - the third-highest total among all players this season.

The Jets, meanwhile, sit three points back of a Western Conference playoff spot, with four games on the schedule in the coming week.
