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 mean, any of those 14 teams (in the lottery) it would have been an absolute honor. If I am selected by Edmonton it will be amazing, a dream come true. They have a lot of amazing young players there.
