New York Islanders defenseman Johnny Boychuk will be out three-to-four weeks with a lower-body injury, the team announced.

The 35-year-old blue-liner logged just over eight minutes in the Islanders' sweep-clinching win over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Tuesday night.

He played in 74 games for New York this season while averaging over 18 minutes per game.

After making quick work of the Penguins, the Islanders await either the Washington Capitals or Carolina Hurricanes in Round 2 of the postseason.
