Kapanen Out 10 Weeks

from the Philadelphia Inquirer,
Philadelphia Flyers forward Sami Kapanen is expected to miss 10 weeks with an injured right shoulder. Kapanen, 32, said he was hurt several weeks ago in a scrimmage. The Flyers said Kapanen will undergo surgery on Tuesday in Philadelphia. The Flyers now have three players sidelined. Center Peter Forsberg is out for about two weeks after undergoing surgery to remove an infected bursa sac in his ankle. Defenseman Derian Hatcher is also recovering from a slightly sprained knee. Kapanen said he was frustrated by the shoulder injury, which involves torn cartilage. The native of Finland had just spent the summer rehabilitating a surgically repaired knee. "Last month I finally started feeling good," he said Thursday. "Not being able to play in the next couple months will be hard."
