Washington Capitals forward Eric Fehr will miss the next 3-to-4 weeks with a shoulder/collarbone injury.

The club made the announcement Saturday afternoon via its Twitter account.

Fehr left Friday's 4-2 home loss to the Vancouver Canucks just prior to the midway point of the third period when he was on the wrong end of a collision with teammate David Steckel.

Caps head coach Bruce Boudreau had originally listed Fehr as unavailable for Sunday's game against Ottawa.

The 25-year-old has posted eight goals and 17 points in 41 games this season.
