Rangers Fedotenko out three weeks Add to ...

New York Rangers forward Ruslan Fedotenko will miss three weeks following an appendectomy he had on Wednesday, the NHL club said.

The 32-year-old Ukrainian, who missed the team's last five games due to a shoulder separation sustained two weeks ago, had the surgery in Manhattan.

Fedotenko, a 10-year NHL veteran and member of Stanley Cup-winning teams in Tampa Bay and Pittsburgh, has nine goals and 10 assists in 48 games this season.

The Rangers (29-20-4) are 8-0-1 when Fedotenko tallies a goal and are 12-2-2 when he registers a point.
