Ducks D Visnovsky out 4 weeks with broken finger @NHLdotcom

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Ducks defenseman Lubomir Visnovsky will be out for about four weeks after breaking a finger on his right hand.

The Ducks disclosed the injury to their top defenseman Saturday.

Visnovsky was hurt when a shot hit his hand in the final minute of Anaheim's 4-3 victory over the Vancouver Canucks on Friday night.

Visnovsky was the NHL's top-scoring defenseman last season with 68 points, and he played through a serious shoulder injury into the postseason in his first full season with Anaheim.

The Slovak defenseman has struggled this season with just four points and a minus-7 rating in 16 games while playing through another broken finger on his left hand for the past two weeks.

Anaheim says Visnovsky won't require surgery.
