GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- New York Rangers defenseman Kevin Klein will miss 2-3 weeks with a strained oblique muscle, coach Alain Vigneault said Tuesday.

Klein was injured in the first period of the Rangers' 4-3 win against the Carolina Hurricanes on Monday.

"From what I saw he did it to himself skating back [into the Rangers' zone]," Vigneault said. "But he said in the morning [Monday] that they worked on him and he felt tight."

With injuries to Klein and center Derek Stepan (out 4-6 weeks with broken ribs), the Rangers are down to six healthy defensemen and 12 healthy forwards for their game against the New York Islanders at Barclays Center on Wednesday (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN, TVA Sports).

Canadiens goalie Price to miss at least six weeks

Monday, 11.30.2015 / 5:32 PM / News

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor

BROSSARD, Quebec – The Montreal Canadiens are facing a stiff test and general manager Marc Bergevinis very eager to see the results.

Goaltender Carey Price will miss at least the next six weeks because of a lower-body injury that will not require surgery, the Canadiens announced Monday.

That six-week timeline ends Jan. 11, or 18 games from now on the Canadiens' schedule after Price already missed nine games while recovering from the same injury from Oct. 29-Nov. 22.

"What he needs is rest and treatment," Bergevin said. "It will take as long as it takes, but it's a minimum of six weeks."

Bergevin has no intention to acquire some goaltending help for the Canadiens, choosing to ride rookie Mike Condon as the starter. Instead, Bergevin wants to see how his team reacts to the adversity of missing Price and forward Brendan Gallagher, out at least another five weeks with two fractured fingers on his left hand.

The Canadiens had no injuries of major significance a season ago. They do now.

"We'll see what the character of this team is," Bergevin said. "I believe in our character, and every team in the NHL goes through periods without key players. Last season we were very lucky, but this year it will be a part of the evaluation of our character as a team. There's no need for us to panic over this."

Mike Brophy - Correspondent

TORONTO -- Edmonton Oilers rookie center Connor McDavid said he is recovering better than expected from a broken left clavicle but is not sure when he'll be able to return to the ice.

McDavid said he no longer feels pain from the injury, which occurred when he crashed into the end boards Nov. 3 against the Philadelphia Flyers. He was expected to miss four months.

"Obviously it is healing well and I feel like it is a little ahead of schedule," McDavid said. "It feels good and I'm going to start doing everything, but at the end of the day I've got to let it heal."

McDavid said he is not skating yet and does not know when he'll be able to play again.
