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

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
