Alex Edler

The New York Rangers will be without centre Derek Stepan indefinitely with a fracture in his left fibula.

Stepan, 24, incurred the injury during a conditioning drill. He will miss 4-6 weeks. Detroit Red Wings center Pavel Datsyuk has a second-degree separation of his right shoulder and will be out 4-5 weeks.

Datsyuk sustained the injury in Detroit’s preseason opener against the Pittsburgh Penguins when he was checked into the glass by Penguins defenseman Rob Scuderi.

The Score: Vancouver Canucks’ d-man Alexander Edler should miss a week of action after taking a puck to the face.
