TORONTO (AP) -Detroit Red Wings forward Jason Williams could miss two months after fracturing his right fibula in a 5-1 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday night.
Williams crashed hard into the boards during the second period.
The 29-year-old right winger was on the ice for several minutes before being helped to the dressing room.
Williams was off to a relatively slow start with two goals and seven points through 14 games, but was still fifth on the team in scoring. He will now likely miss at least two months.
