Blackhawks lose Kostka for 4-6 weeks
Michael Kostka of the Chicago Blackhawks will miss 4-6 weeks with a lower-body injury

The Chicago Blackhawks will be without defenseman Michael Kostka for the next 4-6 weeks due to a lower-body injury he sustained at practice Tuesday.

The injury will not require surgery.

Kostka, who broke into the NHL playing 35 games last season for the Toronto Maple Leafs, had played in two games this season for the Blackhawks. He scored his first NHL goal on Saturday in a 3-1 win against the Maple Leafs.

Quote of the Day

I was going nuts and I saw [Subban], he was going crazy, and the ref had no idea where to go. [Subban] was skating to me, and I was skating to him and the ref was right in between us and I don't know, I kind of hit him pretty hard, I thought, but those were some emotions and I'm pretty sure he understands that.
