Volchenkov Suffers Hand Injury

from the Ottawa Sun,

To make matters worse, the Senators’ injury list is growing. Defenceman Anton Volchenkov could be out for an extended period after leaving the game with a hand injury after blocking a shot on the first shift.

While the Senators are fortunate Christoph Schubert was able to slide back and play on the blueline, losing Volchenkov is costly. He logs a lot of minutes and is usually assigned the job of shutting down the top players in the league with Jaromir Jagr and the New York Rangers visiting tomorrow at 2 p.m.

more on the Senators/Predators game last night…

update 10:33am, via TSN,

Sources tell TSN Anton Volchenkov suffered a broken finger last night when he blocked a shot and it’s expected the Ottawa Senator defenceman will be sidelined for four weeks.
