WASHINGTON (AP) Chicago Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville says left wing Kris Versteeg ''could be out for a bit'' with an injury sustained in the Winter Classic.

Versteeg was hurt when he blocked Eric Fehr's shot with his left hand early in the third period of Thursday's 3-2 loss to the Washington Capitals.

''He could be out for a bit, but we'll know more'' on Friday, Quenneville said.

Versteeg has nine goals and 18 assists this season.
