More has been revealed about an upper-body injury that forced Aaron Ekblad to miss North America's World Cup game against Russia on Monday.

The defenseman is reportedly suffering from a "mild concussion," according to Craig Custance of ESPN.

The injury is believed to have been sustained on a hit from Finland's Leo Komarov in North America's first game of the tournament.

Ekblad's availability going forward is yet to be determined.
