Tanner Fritz will miss six to eight weeks after undergoing surgery to repair a blood clot in his hand, Isles President and GM Lou Lamoriello announced on Sunday.
"He had a little bit of a blood clot between two fingers, so they had to do some surgery and he'll be out six to eight weeks," Lamoriello said. "The operation was 100% successful. It's just the nature of the type of procedure that was done, that it'll take that bit of time. He's fine. It's unfortunate for Tanner, who came in and did so well, but as I said, he'll be fully recovered."
