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

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.

— Penguins GM Jim Rutherford on forward Brandon Sutter
