TORONTO (CP) - Pavel Kubina is disappointed that he's been sidelined with a knee injury but he also knows it could have been worse.

"The good news is there is no surgery," the Toronto Maple Leafs defenceman said Wednesday, a day after getting the diagnosis. "I'll work hard to come back as soon as possible."

He'll be out at least four weeks, but it really depends on how the 29-year-old Czech native responds to treatment on his strained medial collateral ligament. He's never had an injury on the left knee.

Signed July 1 to a US$20-million, four-year deal as one of Toronto's key off-season additions, this is the last thing Kubina wanted early in the season as he tried to prove to fans and the media he's worth the big money.

"It is frustrating, but there's nothing I can do," said the former Tampa blue-liner.
