The Chicago Blackhawks announced today that right wing Adam Burish underwent successful surgery to repair an ACL tear in his right knee. The surgery was performed by Blackhawks Head Team Physician Dr. Michael Terry.
“Adam's surgery went extremely well today,” Terry said. “We anticipate him back and ready to play in six months.” Burish, 26, who was injured in last Sunday’s preseason game at the Minnesota Wild, has recorded 309 penalty minutes and 17 points (10G, 7A) in 156 regular-season games over the last three years with the Blackhawks.
Chicago’s ninth choice (282nd overall) in the 2002 NHL Entry Draft, Burish registered career highs with six goals and nine points in 66 regular-season contests last season before collecting five points (3G, 2A) in 17 tilts during his Stanley Cup Playoff debut.
