It seems that the shoulder injury Blackhawks winger Patrick Sharp suffered earlier this week could be more serious that first thought.

According to this report from the Chicago Tribune, it's possible that the 31-year-old veteran, who has helped the Hawks to the best start in NHL history this season, could be sidelined for several weeks, a source close to the team told the paper.
