from Adam L. Jahns of the Chicago Sun-Times,
After a string of good luck, the Blackhawks have suffered their first significant injury of the season. Patrick Sharp will be out three to four weeks with a left wrist/hand injury.
Sharp, who will not require surgery, suffered the injury in the first period of Sunday’s loss against the Detroit Red Wings. He had played in every game this season and had an All-Star first half with 20 goals and 40 points in 42 games.
Coach Joel Quenneville said Sharp could have suffered the injury when he was slashed on his left wrist by Jiri Hudler when he fired in his 20th goal of the season at 4:19 in the first.
Sharp, though, didn’t leave the game. He later fell on his hands while on the penalty kill. Sharp played only 5:35.
