New York Rangers defenceman Kevin Shattenkirk will miss two-to-four weeks after suffering a shoulder separation in Monday’s 6-3 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning.

He got injured during the second period after taking a a hit by Lightning forward J.T. Miller. He later left the rink with his arm in a sling.

With Shattenkirk out, the Rangers will have to look for possible replacements. McQuaid has been practicing for a week and could be activated off injured reserve or Brendan Smith, who’d been scratched the past two games could step back into the lineup. The Rangers are also in a rebuild mode so the club could also take the opportunity to call up a prospect and give him a taste of the NHL.
