Zawaski: Sharp Out 3-4 Weeks, Smith Recalled

By Jay Zawaski-

Last night, Patrick Sharp gave the Blackhawks an early 2-0 lead over the Red Wings with a slap shot from the slot. ¬†Unfortunately, it looks like that’s the last time he’ll light the lamp for the Hawks for quite a while.

Joel Quenneville announced today that Sharp, the teams 3rd leading scorer, would miss 3-4 weeks with an upper body injury.

After the game, speculation was that Sharp had taken a slash to the wrist, but Quenneville wouldn’t commit to how the injury happened. ¬†Regardless, the rumors have it that it’s a broken left hand or wrist, which is the lead/power hand on a left handed shooter.
