Chicago Blackhawks rookie defenseman Trevor Van Riemsdyk is expected to miss two to three months with a lower-body injury, according to ESPN.

Van Riemsdyk was hit in the left leg by a shot during the first period against the Dallas Stars on Sunday. He limped off the ice and did not return to the game. Blackhawks coach Joel Quinneville said after the game that Van Riemsdyk's injury was "pretty bad", and said the defenseman would be out for "awhile." Van Riemsdyk was placed on long-term IR on Monday.

Van Riemsdyk, the younger brother of Toronto Maple Leafs forward James Van Riemsdyk, has one point (one assist) so far this season.
