Dubinsky Out Three Weeks with Broken Hand

Steve Zipay of Blue Notes has just recently reported that Rangers center Brandon Dubinsky is suffering from a broken hand and will be out of the lineup for around three weeks. Dubinsky took a slap shot to the hand Saturday night in Calgary, and was unable to hold his stick with that hand, leaving him with no choice but to leave the game.

Three weeks is actually not as bad as it seems, considering the Rangers do not play again until Thursday. Brandon will most likely miss eight to nine games in the three week span, returning the first week in December. The good thing is that a hand will not prevent him from skating once it starts to heal, so he will be 100 percent when the time comes for him to return.

No new news on Drury, but I would expect to hear more about that and Dubinsky tomorrow at practice. Also, we keep our fingers crossed that we will be informed of the current status of goaltender Henrik Lundqvist, who supposedly has been dealing with a hip issue over the past week or so.

Geez my girlfriend knows a guy that just broke his hand playing hockey and was really messed up for about 6 weeks and then had another 2 weeks of therapy or something. Oh well, I'm no doctor lol. Hopefully Drury and Dubinsky will both be back when I get back home. We're going to that Rangers/Icelanders game on the 16th!

I would expect Dubinsky back by then, but I do not know about Drury.
