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

For us it's a little bit different. I've never been in front of this much media. This is more than we've ever had to deal with in Tampa. I guess we're on a little bit bigger stage now. It's nice, you have to enjoy it. This doesn't happen too often.
