Blackhawks lose F Sharp for 3-4 weeks

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.

Quote of the Day

It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'
