VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- Vancouver defenseman Ed Jovanovski will be out at least two weeks after spraining his right
shoulder Sunday night.
Jovanovski will be tested again later this week, and be
re-evaluated after the All-Star break.
"There's not much I can do right now," Jovanovski said Monday.
"Mobility, strength, there's not much there."
Jovanovski left Sunday's 4-1 victory over Nashville three minutes
into the first period after sliding heavily into the end boards
with Predators forward Martin Erat on his back.
"It's sore and it's unfortunate, but we'll see how it is after
a couple of weeks and we'll go from there," Jovanovski said.
Jovanovski, who played in last year's All-Star Game and finished
fifth in Norris Trophy voting as the league's top defenseman, has
seven goals and 21 points this season.
Vancouver recalled defenseman Jaroslav Obsut from Manitoba of
the AHL to fill Jovanovski spot on the roster.
Obsut was recalled twice already this season, but hasn't played.
His last NHL game was two seasons ago with Colorado.
