Marc-Andre Fleury will miss time due to injury.

The Minnesota Wild will be without the services of Marc-Andre Fleury for a time, but thankfully things don't sound like they are shaping up to be long term.

On Saturday night, National Hockey League insider Elliotte Friedman shared the latest update on the Wild netminder, revealing that Fleury will in fact miss time as a result of the hit he took on Friday night. Fleury was shaken up after he was on the receiving end of a hit from Florida Panthers forward William Lockwood behind the Wild's net.

"Fleury will not play tomorrow," revealed Friedman on Hockey Night in Canada. "But he remains on the Minnesota road trip and the hope is maybe only a game or two. Thankfully it doesn't look to be anything more serious than that."

The NHL's Department of Player Safety already announced that Lockwood would face a hearing today for the hit on Fleury, although the results of that hearing have yet to be announced.
