New York Rangers President and General Manager Glen Sather announced today that Ryan Callahan has suffered a fracture in his right leg, and will be sidelined indefinitely. Callahan suffered the injury in the third period of last night’s 5-3 victory vs. the Boston Bruins at Madison Square Garden.

Callahan, who was examined by Dr. Andrew Feldman earlier today, has registered career-highs in goals (23), assists (25), points (48), power play goals (10), and game-winning goals (five) while skating in 60 games this season.

He leads the team in power play goals and game-winning goals, ranks second in goals, points, and power play points (15), is tied for third in assists, and ranks second on the team and 12th in the NHL with 224 hits.

Callahan missed 19 games from December 16 to January 25 with a broken hand suffered on December 15 at Pittsburgh.  Since returning from injury on February 1, he leads the Rangers in scoring with 13 goals and 24 points in 27 games.

The fifth-year veteran notched his first career hat trick and a career-high, five points (four goals, one assist) vs. Philadelphia on March 6, and recorded his 100th career NHL point with an assist at Boston on October 23.
