ANAHEIM, Calif. — Ducks defenceman Lubomir Visnovsky will be out for about four weeks after breaking a finger on his right hand.

The Ducks disclosed the injury to their top defenceman Saturday.

Visnovsky was hurt when a shot hit his hand in the final minute of Anaheim's 4-3 victory over the Vancouver Canucks on Friday night.

Visnovsky was the NHL's top-scoring defenceman last season with 68 points, and he played through a serious shoulder injury into the post-season in his first full season with Anaheim.

The Slovak defenceman has struggled this season with just four points and a minus-7 rating in 16 games while playing through another broken finger on his left hand for the past two weeks.

Oiler learns rules hard way

In the end, Lennart Petrell would drop his gloves and do it again, but next time the Edmonton Oilers winger will know that if he instigates a fight, he's going to pay an even higher price because he wears a visor.

After the Detroit Red Wings' Justin Abdelkader plowed into Magnus Paajarvi in the second period, Petrell stepped in to settle the score.

He was sent off with an instigator penalty, an unsportsmanlike minor because of his face shield, a fighting major and a 10-minute misconduct.

So far, Petrelli has made two trips to the penalty box in 15 NHL games, and has served 21 minutes.

"The rules weren't the first thing on my mind," he said.

Sutton returns to Oilers

Edmonton Oilers' Andy Sutton returned to the blue-line on Friday in Detroit after sitting the last five games with a suspension for his hit to the head of Colorado Avalanche rookie Gabriel Landeskog, but he wondered if his return was going to be a short one.

In the second period, Sutton took a shot off the side of his knee and struggled to get up.

He was soon back on the ice and finished the game.

"It hit a nerve, and I thought I broke my leg," he said. "I had no feeling... Everything is OK now."

Barker on limp

Oilers defenceman Cam Barker flew back to Edmonton to have his injured ankle checked out. He was hurt in a 6-3 loss to the Boston Bruins on Thursday.

Head coach Tom Renney said there was some question to the exact nature of Barker's injury, but an MRI will determine the extent of the damage.

Barker missed three games recently with a shoulder injury.
