Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Sharp will miss three to four weeks with an upper-body injury, but it will not require surgery, the team announced via its Twitter account.

Sharp was injured when the Colorado Avalanche's Ryan O'Byrne hit him against the boards on Wednesday. He had to be helped off to the dressing room after suffering what appeared to be a shoulder injury.

Marian Hossa, who missed Wednesday's game, said he's fine and missing the game had nothing to do with an injury, according to the Hawks' Twitter account.
