Ottawa Senators forward Milan Michalek will need 4-6 weeks to recover from surgery to repair an abdominal injury.

According to the Ottawa Sun, the injury occurred during offseason training last month in Montreal.

Michalek, 27, is coming off the best season of his NHL career, when he set a career-high with 35 goals and totaled 60 points for just the second time in eight seasons. His 10 power-play goals also tied for the team lead.

Quote of the Day

I first met him when I was 19 years old and he coached me for 13 consecutive years. I don't know how many athletes who have had that pleasure. Al Arbour was a man that left us not only feeling like champions, but left us with a lot of great memories that we can carry on through life.
