The pain game. Stepan out indefinitely.

The pain game. Stepan out indefinitely.

Derek Stepan went down during a conditioning skate clutching his left leg. He was soon helped off the ice by teammates Mats Zuccarello and Martin St.Louis. Now reports suggest that Stepan has a broken fibula and will be out INDEFINITELY.

This is a huge blow to the Rangers and it makes them even weaker at center. The injury likely isn’t season ending but this will keep Stepan out for at least 4-6 weeks.

Last season he missed all of training camp with a contract dispute and played catch up all year. This could have the same devastating impact.
