Florida Panthers forward Evgenii Dadonov is expected to be sidelined four to six weeks with a shoulder injury.

Dadonov sustained the injury midway into the third period of Saturday's 4-1 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks following a hit by defenseman Cody Franson in front of the net.

Signed to a three-year, $12 million contract on June 30, Dadonov has recorded seven goals and 11 assists in 22 games this season.

The 28-year-old Russian was elevated to the top line after the Panthers opted against re-signing Jaromir Jagr, who joined the Calgary Flames on a one-year, $1 million deal on Oct. 4.
