Boston Bruins’ defenseman Mark Stuart will miss four to six weeks with a broken fourth metacarpal joint in his right ring finger. Stuart suffered the injury during Tuesday night‘s contest against Buffalo.

Stuart was examined by Dr. Matt Leibman at Newton Wellesley Hospital, and the diagnosis was confirmed by GM Peter Chiarelli.

In the meantime, Stuart will be replaced by Steven Kampfer. In 20 games in Providence, Kampfer led the team in points with 16 (three goals, 13 assists).

“Our management has seen him play and he’s a good puck handler, he moves the puck really well,” coach Claude Julien said. “He’s got some mobility and he’s having a good year. I think it is an opportunity for him to step in and show he’s a good puck moving defenseman, which is something we need.”
