Kane leaves game vs. St. Louis with injury, will miss 3 weeks
/ Chicago Blackhawks
Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Kane will be out three weeks and could miss the rest of the regular season after sustaining a lower-body injury during the second period of the game against the St. Louis Blues on Wednesday.
Kane's left leg was hit after teammate Sheldon Brookbank checked Blues forward Brendan Morrow to the ice along the boards. Morrow hit Kane's left leg and he fell awkwardly to the ice.
Kane's last shift ended with 7:21 remaining in the second period.
He skated slowly to the bench then headed to the locker room for examination. Coach Joel Quenneville said Kane will miss at least three weeks, and when asked if he would play again this regular season replied, "We'll see."
The regular season ends Sunday, April 13.
Kane assisted on a power-play goal by Duncan Keith with 54.4 seconds left in the first period of a 4-0 victory.
