CHICAGO (AP) - The Chicago Blackhawks say forward Patrick Sharp, among the NHL's top 10 scorers, will be out 3-4 weeks with an undisclosed upper-body injury.

Coach Joel Quenneville disclosed the news Monday. Sharp was injured late in the first period of Sunday's overtime loss to Detroit and did not return to the game.

Sharp has 20 goals and 20 assists in 42 games this season. As of Monday, he was the NHL's sixth-leading goal scorer.

Playing for my favorite team growing up, I've probably scored that goal a million times in my driveway. It feels good to actually do it in real life.
