The Chicago Blackhawks delivered some bad news today, announcing that defenceman Cam Barker will miss 4-6 weeks with a fractured ankle.

Barker, 20, underwent an MRI this morning and it was discovered that he re-fractured the same ankle that he injured last season.

Barker will have surgery at the University of Chicago Hospital today and is expected to miss 4 to 6 weeks.

Barker was the third overall pick in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft. He made the Blackhawks last season but was sent back to Medicine Hat of the WHL in October after dressing for one game.

He helped Canada to a gold medal at the World Junior Hockey Championship, but broke his ankle in January.
