Islanders center Anders Lee suffered a fractured leg and is out indefinitely, the team confirmed to Newsday's Arthur Staple.
Lee didn't return after the first period of Thursday's 4-1 win over the Rangers after taking a shot off his foot from Johnny Boychuk. The team said he had a lower-body injury.
The Islanders already had a long injury list, with Jaroslav Halak (groin) and Travis Hamonic (knee) leading the way. Cal Clutterbuck (lower body), Brian Strait (upper body), Mikhail Grabovski (concussion) and J.F. Berube (lower body) are also rehabbing. Matt Martin sat out Thursday with an upper-body injury.
Staple reported that Halak skated in full goaltender gear at practice Thursday but did not face shots. He has been out about four weeks for an injury said to take six to eight weeks to heal.
