Derek Dorsett suffered a broken leg on Friday and will be out of the Rangers lineup for the next four-six weeks.
Dorsett suffered the injury while blocking a shot and will likely return after the Olympic break at the end of February as it will be better to give him an extra 17 days to recover rather than play him in one or two games. Dorsett's fantasy value is in the penalty minute category as he leads the NHL with 103 minutes. His three goals and five points helps his value slightly.
