Carolina Hurricanes defenseman Andrej Sekera had abdominal surgery Friday in Philadelphia.

The Hurricanes said his expected recovery time is about six weeks.

Sekera, 27, leads Carolina defensemen with 44 points (11 goals), third on the team, although he hasn't played since April 1. He leads the Hurricanes in blocked shots (127) and average ice time (23:40).

The Hurricanes acquired Sekera in a trade with the Buffalo Sabres at the 2013 NHL Draft.
