Rangers captain Ryan Callahan to miss 4-6 weeks with sprained left knee

NEW YORK, N.Y. - New York Rangers captain Ryan Callahan will be sidelined for four to six weeks because of a sprained left knee sustained Tuesday night in a 4-1 loss to the Nashville Predators.

Callahan, tied for second on the Rangers with seven goals, was injured midway through the first period and didn't return to the game.

He was checked by Predators defenceman Victor Bartley, who swung around and kicked Callahan's left leg into the boards.

Rangers coach Alain Vigneault said after the game that the injury was a second-degree sprain and provided the estimated recovery time.

Callahan was in pain on the bench and then went toward the dressing room 10:54 into the period. He played four shifts and totalled just 3:28 of ice time. He wasn't on the ice for either of Nashville's two first-period goals.

In 24 games, Callahan also has 13 points for the offensively challenged Rangers. He sat out the season opener following shoulder surgery and missed seven games between Oct. 19 and Nov. 2 because of a broken thumb.

Callahan, signed through this season, can become an unrestricted free agent in the summer.
