LAKERS — Los Angeles Kings center Luke Scheln is expected to miss Saturday’s game against the Chicago Blackhawks due the illness he sustained in Tuesday’s win against the New York Rangers.

Scheln was placed on a two-game concussion protocol, but his status for the rest of the season remains unknown.

The 25-year-old Schelan was playing his first NHL game after signing a two year, $2.75 million contract in February.

The Kings were playing in the third round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs when he suffered the injury.

Schelan has played in the NHL for 13 seasons.

“We just had to make sure he gets checked and see how it goes,” Kings general manager Dean Lombardi said.

“We’ll make the decision when we get to the game.”

Schelen is a five-time Stanley Cup champion with New Jersey and Chicago, winning the Conn Smythe Trophy in 2007 and ’08, as well as the Conn, Conn Smyth, Conn and Conn Smyit trophy in 2016.

The Blackhawks won Game 3 4-2, but the Kings, who had two players score, tied it with a goal by Kyle Okposo in the second period.

Scolns goal came after Chicago’s Johnny Oduya scored from the slot.

The Blackhawks were leading 3-1 when Schelns shot off a rebound in front of the net.

Schelners goal came with 4:31 left in the first period and Blackhawks goalie Corey Crawford stopped 29 of 30 shots in the game.

Scolas goal came in the fourth period after the Kings tied the game with 2:03 left in regulation when the Blackhawks’ Tomas Nosek scored.

The Blackhawks scored the next two goals and Schels second goal, a power play goal, came with 2 1/2 minutes remaining in the period.

Chicago goalie Corey Hart stopped 23 of 24 shots in regulation and the Blackhawks went on to win the series 4-3.
