ANAHEIM, Calif. – Ducks defenceman Lubomir Visnovsky will be out for about four weeks after breaking a finger on his right hand.
The Ducks disclosed the injury to their top defenceman Saturday.
Visnovsky was hurt when a shot hit his hand in the final minute of Anaheim’s 4-3 victory over the Vancouver Canucks on Friday night.
Visnovsky was the NHL’s top-scoring defenceman last season with 68 points, and he played through a serious shoulder injury into the post-season in his first full season with Anaheim.
The Slovak defenceman has struggled this season with just four points and a minus-7 rating in 16 games while playing through another broken finger on his left hand for the past two weeks.
Anaheim says Visnovsky won’t require surgery.
