Philadelphia Flyers defenseman Ryan Parent will undergo back surgery on Monday and miss approximately six weeks, the team announced Saturday.

"After running the gamut with Ryan in terms of different things we have tried to relieve the discomfort he was having, we felt this was the way to go for Ryan's overall health," Flyers GM Paul Holmgren said in a statement.

Parent, 22, has missed the last 14 games due to the back injury. So far this season, he has registered two assists and 14 penalty minutes in 28 games with the Flyers.
