Calvert had the procedure performed by Dr. William Myers as the Vincera Institue in Philadelphia.
The 23-year-old left wing, who had been placed on injured reserve Monday, had no points and a plus-1 rating in three games; considered a speedy, tenacious forechecker, he had nine goals and seven assists in 42 games last season.
To take Calvert's spot on the roster, the Blue Jackets recalled forward Sean Collins from the club's American Hockey League affiliate, the Springfield Falcons. The 24-year-old center had no points and a minus-2 rating in five games with the Blue Jackets last season.
It's cool when you think about how many great American players have played the game and the two players that were at that 18-game point streak and what they've done in their careers. It's pretty cool right now, but it was kind of overshadowed by the loss.
