Breaking: Kevin Klein out 3 to 4 weeks with upper body injury

The New York Rangers have just broke the news that Kevin Klein will miss 3-4 weeks due to an Alex Ovechkin shoot in. 

With his loss, the Rangers will have Matt Hunwick take his spot in the lineup. New York will be able to put Klein on LTIR and get some cap relief to call up Chris Summers if they choose.

If Klein can return in 3 weeks, it will be April 4th against the Devils at the Garden. If it is the full 4 weeks, Klein could return for the last game of the year Saturday, April 11th against the Caps.
