Buffalo Sabres star Tage Thompson departed Wednesday's game against the Carolina Hurricanes with an upper-body injury, the team announced.

Head coach Don Granato didn't provide an update on Thompson's status after the 5-1 loss.

Thompson played the first two periods but didn't come back out for the third. He was seen walking gingerly to the dressing room at the end of the second.

The 25-year-old was considered day-to-day with an upper-body ailment earlier in the week, but he never missed any games.

Thompson, the Sabres' lone All-Star Game representative, has registered 34 goals and 34 assists in 50 games this season.
