Winnipeg Jets defenceman Zach Bogosian to undergo surgery on right wrist

WINNIPEG - Winnipeg Jets defenceman Zach Bogosian will undergo wrist surgery, the NHL club announced Thursday.

The Jets said the procedure will be performed Friday in Cleveland by Dr. Thomas Graham.

"Winnipeg Jets defenceman, Zach Bogosian, has been diagnosed with a chronic ligament tear in his right wrist,'' Jets head physician Dr. Peter MacDonald said in a statement. "During off-season training, Zach experienced discomfort and was limited in his performance.''

The six-foot-three, 215-pound American had five goals and 25 assists in 65 games with Winnipeg last season.

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.
