Detroit Red Wings forward Cory Emmerton suffered a broken finger on Saturday while playing for SaiPa of SM-Liiga, the top league in Finland.

"1 period 1 shot 1 blocked shot 1 broken finger, great stats Cory," he said on his Twitter account after the 3-2 shootout victory against Kalpa Kuopio.

The Detroit News says Emmerton will need surgery and could be sidelined for up to two months.

Emmerton, 24, played in 71 games with six goals and 10 points for the Red Wings last season, and added a goal in the playoffs.

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
