TSN is reporting, via the Chicago Tribune, that Patrick Kane will miss weeks with a 'significant injury'.
It appears the Chicago Blackhawks will have to make do without Patrick Kane for weeks, not days.
According to the Chicago Tribune, Kane suffered a significant injury in Sunday's win over the Calgary Flames and has joined Marian Hossa, Brian Campbell and Dave Bolland on the injury list.
"We've found a way to play without some of our top players," Jonathan Toews told the Tribune on Monday. "Guys like Campbell and Hossa and I guess now we don't have a choice, we'll have to do it without Kane. It's about everyone else stepping up.
Kane appeared to jam his skate into the boards and had to be helped off the ice. The Blackhawks had Monday off so no official update was provided by the team.
"It's tough to see Kane go down," Duncan Keith told the newspaper. "He's a big part of the team, we know that. Those sorts of things happen over and over on different teams, where a top player gets injured and you have to deal with it."
Until this injury, Kane has only missed three games due to injury.
