Kane underwent successful surgery to repair a left clavicle fracture Wednesday, and he's expected to miss 12 weeks.

With the team's worst nightmare now confirmed, Chicago may look to make a move to add another winger to help compensate for the loss of Kane. Assuming the 12-week timetable holds up, Kane would be ready to return during the third round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, if the Blackhawks make it that far.

The Blackhawks have placed Kane (upper body) on long-term injured reserve, the team's official site reports.

In a corresponding move, the team recalled forward Teuvo Teravainen from AHL Rockford. Per the Chicago Sun-Times, there are fears that Kane suffered a clavicle injury Tuesday, and while the Hawks did not provide an official update on the forward's status Wednesday morning, ESPN.com has indicated that he'll be out 6-10 weeks.

Kane's upper-body injury is suspected to be a broken collarbone, Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune reports.

While the Blackhawks haven't confirmed the nature of the injury nor an expected length of absence, sources from within the organization have informed the media that Kane is expected to miss more than six weeks and possibly up to 10-plus weeks with the injury. That timeframe would keep him out for the remainder of the regular season and likely extend deep into the playoffs, robbing the Blackhawks of their most productive playmaker. With no one available on the trade market to easily replace Kane's offensive output, the Blackhawks could begin to slide down the Western Conference standings.

Kane (upper body) could miss between six to more than 10 weeks after being smashed into the boards by Florida's Alex Petrovic Tuesday night in the first period, the Chicago Tribune reports.

Hawks' Joel Quenneville said after the game that Kane would 'miss some time', but the time period was expected to explained on Wednesday. Depending on the length of time, it most likely would place Kane's return during the Stanley Cup playoffs. Kane sustained the injury on a cross check by the Panthers' Alex Petrovic near the eight-minute mark of the first period. The Blackhawks winger lost his balance after the hit and tumbled into the boards, appearing to hurt his left shoulder or arm. Both the team and fantasy owners alike are surely holding their breath for good news regarding Kane, who is tied for the league lead with 64 points on the season.

Kane racked up a goal and two assists in Wednesday's 5-4 OT loss to the Canucks.Kane continued his recent dominance with three more points, putting him firmly in the lead in the NHL's scoring race with 62 points in 55 games. Since being matched up with center Brad Richards about a month into the season, Kane has been arguably the best player in the NHL, so fantasy owners should pay careful attention to who the Hawks have lined up to center the winger next season, as Richards is likely just a one year rental.

Kane potted his 26th of the season and assisted on the game winner in overtime as the Blackhawks grounded the Jets 2-1 on Friday.

No. 88 took center stage as the only Kane playing in the contest, tying the game with a second-period snipe before hooking up with Brandon Saad to bring home the win in the extra frame. With 58 points in 52 games, the 26-year-old is arguably having the best season of his eight-year NHL career, and currently holds a share of the scoring lead with the Flyers' Jakub Voracek. Most impressively, his 26 goals are just four shy of his career high of 30 set in 2009-10, so at the very least he's set to smash that personal best with 30 games remaining in the campaign.

Kane had a pair of goals on Friday night in the Blackhawks' 4-1 victory over the Ducks and has five goals in his last five games.

Going into Saturday night's game against the Sharks, Kane has six goals and 15 assists in 26 games against San Jose in his career. The Blackhawks' second line with Kane, Patrick Sharp and Brad Richards is on fire. Kane had two goals and an assist in the win against the Ducks while Sharp added four assists and Richards chipped in an assist of his own. With two more goals Kane has accumulated 25 on the season in 49 games. If he stays away from injuries, he'll easily surpass his career high in goals in a season of 30 in the 2009-10 season. It's doubtful though that he will surpass his career high of 88 points in that season. He currently has 56 points in 49 games including 31 assists.
