SUNRISE, Fla. -- Florida winger Richard Zednik will be out for several weeks after injuring his left arm during Monday night's 3-2 victory over Carolina.

Zednik was hurt in the second period when he was checked into the boards behind the Carolina net by defenseman Josef Melichar.

"It looks fairly long-term, weeks anyway," coach Pete DeBoer said.

Zednik missed the final 24 games of last season after his neck was slashed by the skate of teammate Olli Jokinen during a Feb. 10 game at Buffalo.

Zednik has three goals and five assists this season.
