AROUND THE NHL

Lindros Is Sidelined

October 22, 2003|From Associated Press

Eric Lindros has a sprain in the area where the left shoulder and collarbone meet the chest and will be out two to four weeks, the New York Rangers said Tuesday.

Lindros was injured in the Rangers' 3-1 victory over Florida on Monday and left Madison Square Garden without speaking to reporters. He was unavailable for comment Tuesday.

Ranger Coach and General Manager Glen Sather wasn't sure when Lindros was injured, except he knew the center played after the injury.

Lindros may have been injured midway through the second period after becoming entangled with a Florida player in the right corner.

"Losing Eric was disappointing, but he'll be back," Ranger captain Mark Messier said.

Calgary goaltender Roman Turek will sit out two to four weeks because of a sprained ligament in his right knee.

Turek was injured in the opening minutes of the Flames' 2-0 loss to Buffalo on Saturday when he dropped to his knees to stop a shot from Ales Kotalik, who scored.

Colorado rookie Marek Svatos will have surgery next week on his left shoulder and could sit out the regular season.

The forward partially dislocated the shoulder in Colorado's second game.

Svatos had season-ending surgery on the shoulder in January when he was in the AHL.
