NEW YORK (Reuters) - New York Rangers captain Chris Drury has suffered a broken finger and will miss the start of the regular season, the NHL said on its website (NHL.com) on Monday.

Drury sustained the injury during a morning scrimmage and is expected to miss four weeks.

The Rangers kick off their season on October 9 against the Buffalo Sabres, and Drury will likely be absent for the team's first four games.

Drury is looking to bounce back after struggling to a career-low 14 goals and 32 points last season.
