Sports hernia surgery puts Wolski on shelf
New York Rangers left wing Wojtek Wolski will undergo surgery for a sports hernia Wednesday and is expected to miss about four weeks.

The 25-year-old has been battling groin problems since training camp, but Wolski left the Rangers' game against the Anaheim Ducks on Thursday and has not played since.

With just 2 assists in 6 games, it's been a disappointing season for Wolski, who was given the first crack at playing with Marian Gaborik and Brad Richards. Injuries and ineffectiveness forced coach John Tortorella to shuffle Wolski around, and now surgery will keep him on IR.

The procedure will be performed by Dr. William Meyers at Core Performance Physicians in Philadelphia.
