NEW YORK - New York Rangers centre Erik Christensen will miss the next four to six weeks with a right knee injury, general manager Glen Sather announced Thursday.

Christensen sustained a second degree sprain to the medial collateral ligament during Wednesday's 3-1 victory at New Jersey. He was examined by Dr. Anthony Maddalo and had an MRI exam Thursday to determine the severity of the injury.

The 27-year-old has tallied six goals and eight assists in 37 games this season.
