Mark Stuart on the shelf 4-6 weeks with broken sternum

5

Defenseman Mark Stuart will miss the next 4-6 weeks with a broken sternum. Stuart suffered the injury late in the game against the Philadelphia Flyers on Monday. Fellow defenseman Dennis Wideman is also nursing an undisclosed injury. Neither player traveled with the team to Chicago for Friday night's game. ....Maybe bringing back Aaron Ward isn't such a bad idea.
