Zack Smith will be out 7-10 days for the Chicago Blackhawks because of a left hand injury.

The forward was injured late in the second period of a 3-0 loss to the Vancouver Canucks on Wednesday after being cut by a skate. 

"He's going to be out for a little bit," Blackhawks coach Jeremy Colliton said after the game. "I'm not sure exactly the timeline, but [I'd] be surprised [if] he played next game."

The Blackhawks (25-24-8) next play at the Calgary Flames on Saturday (10 p.m. ET; CBC, SN, SN360, CITY, NBCSCH, NHL.TV). Chicago is six points behind the Arizona Coyotes for the second wild card into the Stanley Cup Playoffs from the Western Conference.

Smith has 11 points (four goals, seven assists) in 50 games this season, his first with Chicago.
