New York Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist will miss at least one month after getting struck in the neck by a puck on Saturday.
The Rangers said Lundqvist's vascular injury will be reevaluated in three weeks.
After sustaining the injury, Lundqvist fell to the ice and remained motionless for several minutes while being assisted by trainers, but he finished the game. He also played all of Monday's game against the Florida Panthers, but according to the New York Post, the goalie has been experiencing intermittent headaches and underwent a series of examinations on Wednesday.
Lundqvist is 25-11-3 with five shutouts, a .922 save percentage and 2.25 goals-against average this season.
