Pelech left Monday's game with an upper-body injury and did not return, Andy Graziano of SportsNet New York reports.

Apparently the injury isn't anything serious but Pelech was simply "too sore" to return for the third period. The defenseman has three points and a minus-4 rating while averaging around 16 minutes of ice time across nine contests this season, so his absence isn't likely to impact many fantasy leagues.
