Philadelphia Flyers left wing James van Riemsdyk suffered a broken bone in his foot during Thursday's game against the New York Islanders.
Van Riemsdyk was hurt when he blocked a slap shot by Islanders defenseman Milan Jurcina with his left foot. X-rays taken between periods revealed the break.
The 22-year-old van Riemsdyk is expected to be sidelined at least a month, but will learn a more definitive timetable Friday.

The second overall pick of the 2007 draft, van Riemsdyk has 11 goals and 13 assists in 43 games this season.
