New York Islanders center Frans Nielsen sustained a broken hand by a slash by Colorado Avalanche defenseman Erik Johnson during their game Saturday, according to a report by Arthur Staple of Newsday.

Johnson received a two-game suspension Tuesday from the NHL Department of Player Safety.

Nielsen has 18 goals and 43 points in 60 games this season. The Islanders' first game after the Olympic break is Feb. 27 against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Quote of the Day

For six months, it's a really good accomplishment. But as soon as April [11, the end of the regular season] comes around, no one thinks about the regular season anymore. For six months, it's a real battle to get into the playoffs in the NHL these days. There are a lot of good teams, and it takes consistency over a long time.
