Rangers' Stepan out 4-6 weeks with broken fibula

New York Rangers center Derek Stepan sustained a non-displaced fractured fibula during an on-ice workout Wednesday and will miss 4-6 weeks.

According to, Stepan was taking part in a full-rink sprint drill, but shortly after pushing off and trying to get up to speed, he fell to his knees. After sliding to a stop, Stepan was attended to on the ice and then helped off by teammates Mats Zuccarello and Martin St. Louis.

Stepan had not been on the ice since Saturday because of a foot contusion sustained blocking a Dan Girardi shot during an informal skate Sept. 9. Vigneault said Stepan had X-rays taken immediately after he was hit, again Sunday and then again before skating Wednesday, and all came back negative.

"[Stepan] had been feeling real good the last 48 hours," Vigneault said. "He took the third X-ray, everything looked normal, he was good to go and then he stepped on the ice."
