PHILADELPHIA - Philadelphia Flyers forward Joffrey Lupul was expected to miss at least two weeks because of a spinal cord contusion and mild concussion.

Lupul collided with teammate Darien Hatcher in Philadelphia's 3-2 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday and spent the night in the hospital.

"Right now we have to give Joffrey some complete time off," Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren said Sunday. "He's going to take a couple weeks off from doing pretty much everything and then we'll evaluate him at that point two weeks from now."

Lupul has 16 goals and 19 assists in 39 games this season.
