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

After being through it and seeing the other [outdoor] games on TV, just the atmosphere is spectacular. To stand here -- and we are essentially almost on the blue line -- and look up [into the stands] and knowing it is going to be packed and playing our biggest rival in this setting is going to be pretty special.
