Orpik Expected Back Sometime This Season

via Rob Rossi of Chipped Ice,

Coach Dan Bylsma will provide more details after practice, but GM Ray Shero said today he expects D Brooks Orpik to “be out a while,” adding that “we expect him back this season.” Orpik injured his right arm—likes his hand—when he absorbed a shot from Sharks C Patrick Marleau Wednesday night in a home overtime loss.

Bylsma: Orpik has a broken finger and will be approximately 4 weeks.
