CHICAGO -- Chicago Blackhawks forward Rene Bourque will miss
at least a month after breaking his thumb during Saturday night's
5-3 win over the Detroit Red Wings.

Bourque added two short-handed goals and an assist during the
game, but injured his thumb while blocking a shot in the third
period.

So far this season, the 25-year-old has three goals, all
short-handed. He's also added five assists for eight points in 16
games.

Bourque is in his second season with the Blackhawks.
