NEW YORK (AP) - The Rangers are dealing with another serious injury to a key forward, losing scoring leader Brandon Dubinsky for up to a month because of a stress fracture in his left leg.
The announcement was made Wednesday night shortly before New York hosted the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Dubinsky, who has a team-high 17 goals and 38 points, is expected to be sidelined for three to four weeks, the Rangers say. The center was examined by team doctor Andrew Feldman on Wednesday, and an MRI and bone scan revealed the fracture in his left fibula.
The Rangers are already without injured forwards Alex Frolov, Ryan Callahan, and Vinny Prospal as they try to hold on to a playoff position in the Eastern Conference. Frolov has already been ruled out for the season.
