Jooris sustained a separated shoulder in Wednesday's game against the Bruins, and will likely be placed on injured reserve according to Rangers' coach Alain Vigneault, Newsday's Steve Zipay reports.

The bottom-line winger's absence will likely go unnoticed by fantasy owners, but may force the Rangers to recall a player from the minors to shore up the team's depth at forward. At this juncture there's no telling how long Jooris will be sidelined, but the Rangers' should release a more definitive timetable for his return to action once his placement on injured reserve is made official.
