Valtteri Flippula lost to lower body injury

(WXYZ) - Red Wings forward Valtteri Filppula left tonight's game against the Chicago Blackhawks with a lower body injury and has not returned to the ice.

Video of the play has surfaced on the internet

The Red Wings lost Filppula to what appears to be an ankle injury less than five minutes into the game. 

Filppula was involved in a shoving incident in front of the Red Wings bench with Chicago's Andrew Shaw after Shaw had cross-checked Henrik Zetterberg while Zetterberg was returning to the bench. 

Filppula was assisted to the locker room and was spotted by reporters positioned near the Red Wings bench being escorted to the x-ray room on crutches.

There has been no announcement about Filppula's status from the Red Wings.
