Patrick Sharp hurt, leaves in first

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Chicago Blackhawks winger Patrick Sharp left Sunday's 2-1 win against the Phoenix Coyotes late in the first period with a left knee injury.

Sharp, who collided with Phoenix's Rostislav Klesla, left the ice with the help of the training staff and went immediately to the dressing room.

The collision occurred with 1:35 left in the period. Sharp didn't return to the game and coach Joel Quenneville said he will be re-evaluated on Monday. Sharp was unavailable for comment.

Sharp has a career-high 68 points this season -- 34 goals and 34 assists.
