ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Anaheim Ducks All-Star defenseman Chris Pronger will be out about two weeks because of a broken bone in his toe.

He was injured during a post-game workout Sunday night, the team said Wednesday.

Pronger had an X-ray Tuesday night, which revealed the break. He was at the Ducks' arena Wednesday to receive treatment.

Pronger has endured various mishaps in his first season with the Ducks since being traded from Edmonton.

He broke his left foot when he blocked a shot against Minnesota on Dec. 31 and returned Jan. 28 after missing nine games.

Last month, Pronger was struck in the face and throat by Lubomir Visnovsky's slap shot in a game against the Los Angeles Kings, but the injury wasn't serious.

He has 11 goals, 42 assists and 63 penalty minutes in 58 games.
