Zubrus wrist surgery successful, out 4-6 weeks

New Jersey Devils forward Dainius Zubrus underwent successful wrist surgery Thursday and will miss 4-6 weeks, the team announced.

Zubrus had one goal and four points in nine games this season.

In his absence, rookie Stefan Matteau has been playing on the top line with Travis Zajac and Ilya Kovalchuk. The team also reacquired forward Alexei Ponikarovsky on Wednesday from the Winnipeg Jets in exchange for a pair of draft picks.

Quote of the Day

Just the feel for the direction they were headed and what they're trying to do, it just felt that this is a really good thing for this organization. They've got the pieces. We can put something together and go on a run or two and be together for a while, and I'm really excited about that opportunity. The team we have here has an opportunity to win, and that's the most attractive thing.
