JetsPR would announce that Poolman wouldn’t return to the game due to injury.

Update: Jets coach Paul Maurice after the game said “no mechanism of injury” regarding Tucker Poolman, which means there wasn’t an event that happened on the ice.  Poolman said he just didn’t feel he could continue in the third.  Jets bench boss said it was upper-body injury and “we’ll see how he is in a couple of days.”.
