BOSTON (AP) -The Boston Bruins scoring leader Marc Savard will miss four to six weeks with a broken left foot.
The team's announcement Wednesday did not say when Savard injured the foot.
The forward has led the team in scoring each of the past three years. He did not miss a game last season, when he had 25 goals and 63 assists for 88 points. He has four goals and three assists this season.
The team recalled 32-year-old forward Trent Whitfield from Providence. He has scored three goals with eight assists this season. Whitfield is expected to be available for Wednesday night's game with Nashville.
