GREENBURGH, N.Y. (AP) New York Rangers center Derek Stepan has broken his lower left leg during a conditioning drill.

The Rangers say it's unclear how long Stepan will be sidelined. The 24-year-old Stepan missed a scrimmage on Sunday and preseason game on Monday with a leg injury.

After several X-rays, he was cleared to take part in fitness testing on Wednesday.

Rangers coach Alain Vigneault (vihn-YOH') says Stepan got hurt despite three X-rays and ''feeling really good the last 48 hours.''

Vigneault says after the final X-ray, ''everything looked normal and good to go. Then he stepped on the ice and unfortunately got hurt.''

The Rangers season opener is Oct. 9.
