The New York Rangers will be without right winger Derek Dorsett for a lengthy period of time.

As per Katie Strang of ESPN New York, the Rangers announced that Dorsett suffered a broken fibula blocking a shot in the first period of Friday’s 5-2 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins. He is expected to be out for six weeks as a result.

The 27-year-old Dorsett had only three minutes and 19 seconds of ice time Friday, before the injury occurred.

In 37 games with the Rangers this season, Dorsett has three goals and five points.

    gotta respect how he stayed on his feet and tried to keep killing the penalty after blocking the initial shot. Nobody would have blamed him if he crawled to the bench.

    First Cambell now Dorsett. Two broken Fibula’s in less than a year off of Penguins sticks. Crazy how that puck bounces sometimes. Heal up, Dorsett.

    Now he can watch the horror show that is the NY Rangers on TV instead of from the ice

    Hockey players never cease to amaze. Skating on a broken fibula cannot be pleasant. Get well soon
