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

It's an incredible feeling just to see it go in and see the Joe go pretty crazy.  Ever since the introduction there, I was kind of feeling the nerves, and to put that one home, I started to feel comfortable and I thought my play started to pick up.
