Ottawa Senators forward Shane Pinto is expected to be sidelined at least five games with an upper-body injury, coach D.J. Smith announced Saturday.

Pinto exited Ottawa's 2-1 loss on Thursday to the San Jose Sharks in the first period following a hit from defenseman Brent Burns. Pinto returned in the second period before exiting after one shift.

"We don't know officially but we're probably thinking for sure tonight (against the visiting New York Rangers), Monday (versus visiting Washington Capitals) and the (three-game) road trip," Smith said Saturday.

Pinto, 20, has recorded one assist for his lone point in four games this season. He has eight points (one goal, seven assists) in 16 career games with the Senators.

Parker Kelly, 22, will draw into the lineup in place of Pinto against the Rangers.
