Boyle to miss significant time

D Dan Boyle is expected to miss 3-6 weeks according to Lightning GM Jay Feaster after a skate fell off of Boyle’s locker, cutting the side of his left wrist. He received four stiches and cut his abductor tendon. He will have surgery on the wrist Sunday.
Boyle was in the locker room following Saturday’s 2-1 loss to Washington when he closed the lid on his locker seat, it slammed, and the vibration sent one of his skates tumbling about two feet down, blade first, onto his arm.
Boyle let out a gasp and hurried out of the locker room to get medical attention.
Feaster said they would know more about how long Boyle will be out once Boyle is out of surgery.
UPDATE ON VINNY LECAVALIER: The nature of Lecavalier’s upper-body injury is not known, but he said after the game is was nothing serious and he didn’t return for precautionary reasons and he doesn’t expect to miss any time.
