Tampa Bay Lightning star Brayden Point is out indefinitely with an upper-body injury, the team announced.

Point was a late scratch for the club's clash with the Minnesota Wild on Sunday. He went hard into the boards Saturday versus the New Jersey Devils after being tripped on a breakaway.

Point appeared to be in considerable pain but stayed in the contest, ultimately missing the ensuing penalty shot.

The Lightning are now without two forwards on their top line, as winger Nikita Kucherov is also shelved while recovering from a procedure on a lower-body injury.

Point had notched 13 points in 16 games while averaging 20 minutes per night before getting hurt.
