Avs' Hejduk to have knee surgery Tuesday @NHLdotcom

DENVER (AP) -Avalanche forward Milan Hejduk will undergo arthroscopic knee surgery on Tuesday and miss up to four weeks.

Hejduk won't be at the Vancouver Games after playing in the last three Winter Olympics for the Czech Republic. He was a member of the gold-medal winning team at the 1998 Winter Games in Nagano.

He's missed six games this season because of the injury, and watched Monday's skate-around leading up to a game with the Edmonton Oilers.

The 33-year-old Hejduk is fourth on the team in scoring with 30 points in 40 games this season.
