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.

I came into a team that had 65 points, that was at the bottom of the basement, a team that everybody wrote off as never going to be good. My goal is to go from the very bottom to the very top.
