Vegas Golden Knights star Jack Eichel temporarily left Monday's game against the Columbus Blue Jackets after a teammate's errant wrist shot struck him in the face in the third period.

Eichel departed the ice immediately, leaving a trail of blood behind him, but he returned for the final few minutes of regulation.

Eichel has been exceptional for the Western Conference-leading Golden Knights this season, pacing the club with 26 points in 23 games entering Monday.
