Calgary Flames general manager Darryl Sutter wrapped up a busy trade deadline day Wednesday and then announced that Todd Bertuzzi had undergone arthroscopic surgery on his knee this week.

Sutter said Bertuzzi will be out about a month.

"It was better to go in and get it cleaned up and ready to go," said Sutter, noting that Bertuzzi had been having trouble with the knee for the last couple of weeks and wasn't going to play in the last two Flames home games last weekend.

Bertuzzi had the surgery, to repair cartilage, on Tuesday.

Quote of the Day

He's a winner. We want winners here, and he's a proven winner. He's won two Stanley Cups. He's 22 years old and been a big part of it. He's got all the right tools. He's got size (6-foot-1, 204 pounds) and strength. He's exactly what we were looking for. He's going to be a big piece of our team for many, many years to come.
