Los Angeles Kings general manager Dean Lombardi told the Los Angeles Times that Marian Gaborik will be miss up to eight weeks with a foot injury that he suffered in Team Europe’s win over Sweden at the World Cup of Hockey.

Gaborik, 34, will miss the finals against Canada that begin Tuesday as well as the start of the NHL regular season. Miroslav Satan, general manager of Team Europe, said that Gaborik has left the team and will not return.

“Marian was a very important part of Team Europe throughout the entire World Cup of Hockey, and though he is leaving our group today, he remains a part of our team,” Satan said in a prepared statement. “We know he will be supporting us in the final against Team Canada, and we wish him all the best in his recovery.”

Gaborik scored a goal in Europe’s upset win Sunday before taking a puck off his foot in the second period. He was seen on crutches on Monday.
