Los Angeles Kings forward Kyle Clifford had successful surgery to correct a small fracture of a bone in one of his wrists last month, according to Jon Rosen of LAKingsInsider.com. Recovery time was estimated at 6-8 weeks.

Clifford, 23, had three goals and eight points in 71 regular-season games last season. He had a goal and six assists in 24 games in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Clifford had the surgery June 24, the same day Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick had surgery to repair a wrist ligament. The Kings did not specify when Clifford's injury occurred.

A second-round pick (No. 35) in the 2009 NHL Draft, Clifford has 22 goals and 48 points in 276 games.
