Dan Boyle Out 4-6 Weeks

From USA Today,

Tampa Bay Lightning defenseman Dan Boyle’s severed tendons in his wrist area were surgically repaired Sunday and he’s projected to be out of the lineup four to six weeks. Boyle was injured in a freak accident after Saturday’s loss to Washington when his skate fell off its hook and sliced his wrist.

“The doctors who did the surgery today said it was a cut with surgical precision,” said Tampa Bay general manager Jay Feaster.

According to Feaster, Boyle told him that he put his skates on the hook, as he always does, and was talking to teammate Doug Janik when it came crashing down. Feaster said members of the media heard the lid of Boyle’s cubicle slam shut, and they theorize that the vibration knocked the skate off the hook.
