Florida Panthers winger Nathan Horton sidelined with fractured tibia @NHLdotcom

SUNRISE, Fla. - Florida Panthers winger Nathan Horton will miss four to six weeks with a fractured tibia.

Panthers general manager Randy Sexton on Saturday said Horton's injury doesn't require surgery. Some of his recovery will occur during the NHL's Olympic break in February, which Sexton called a "silver lining."

Horton was injured Thursday night in Florida's 2-1 loss to the New York Islanders. He was hit in the leg with a puck and had to crawl to the bench.

Horton has 17 goals and 29 assists in 51 games this season.

The Panthers play the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday night.
