Isles’ Clutterbuck (leg laceration) out 4-6 weeks

The New York Islanders have announced that forward Cal Clutterbuck will miss 4-6 weeks with a leg laceration suffered on Tuesday night vs. Calgary.

Clutterbuck, 25, appeared to suffer the cut early in the third period after throwing a hit on Flames forward Paul Byron. Clutterbuck immediately left the ice and appeared to be in serious discomfort, and didn’t return to the game.

If Clutterbuck does miss the full six weeks, he’s projected to return around the beginning of November — meaning he could miss as many as 12 regular season contests.

Should that happen, it would be a major blow to the Isles. Clutterbuck, an energetic forward and former junior teammate of Isles captain John Tavares, was brought aboard to add physicality to New York’s forward group.

He inked four-year, $11 million deal in July — shortly after being acquired from Minnesota in exchange for Nino Niederreiter — and began training camp on a line with Peter Regin and Michael Grabner.
