ATLANTA -- Atlanta Thrashers defenseman Tobias Enstrom will be sidelined two to four weeks because of a broken finger and miss the NHL All-Star game this weekend.
Enstrom had set a franchise record by playing in 296 consecutive games. The streak ended Sunday because of the injury to his right hand.
His injury leaves defenseman Dustin Byfuglien as Atlanta's only All-Star participant.
Meanwhile, Thrashers forward Andrew Ladd missed practice Tuesday with a lower body injury. He is questionable for Wednesday night's home game against Washington.
