Leopold out for 4 Weeks

It's now been confirmed that Jordan Leopold sustained a broken wrist in Thursday's game against the Flames and will be out for 4 weeks. So in his first game back against his former team, he gets slammed into the boards and breaks his wrist. Welcome back!

He should return just in time for about the last 10 games of the season. That will bring his total this season up to a staggering 25 games played and doesn't bode too well for contract talks going into the summer.

He is only an RFA so I wouldn't think he'll get anything more than a QO. The main question is how long he will sign for. I'd like to see a two-year deal, at his current salary. If he overcomes his injury issues, he could be a very solid top-four defenseman and that's not too steep a salary to handle. Nor would too long of a contract to get hampered by should he develop the plague or tear a hammy.
