Claude Julien said Chuck Kobasew would be sidelined for three weeks, dating back to last Thursday's game when he suffered a fractured right ankle.
No word on whether Kobasew has been placed on long-term injured reserve. To be eligible for LTIR, a player must be unfit to play for 10 games and 24 calendar days. If the Bruins placed Kobasew on LTIR, the earliest he'd be eligible to play would be Nov. 1 against Dallas.
UPDATE: Peter Chiarelli said Kobasew will go on regular injured reserve, not LTIR. Kobasew's $2.333 million cap hit will continue to count against Boston's number.
