Islanders right-winger Richard Park out 4 weeks with broken ribs

UNIONDALE, N.Y. - New York Islanders forward Richard Park will miss four weeks because of broken ribs.

Park had 15 minutes 53 seconds of ice time Wednesday during a 3-1 road loss to the New York Rangers and showed no sign of injury.

The Islanders didn't know when Park got hurt, but the 32-year-old right-winger crashed hard into Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist 6:32 into the second period and was sent off for interference.

Park and captain Bill Guerin were the only Islanders who played in all of New York's first 57 games.

Trent Hunter, who had missed four games due to a hip flexor injury, replaced Park in the lineup for Thursday night's game against the Carolina Hurricanes.
