by NHL.com Staff

New Jersey Devils forward Dainius Zubrus underwent successful wrist surgery Thursday and will miss 4-6 weeks, the team announced.

Zubrus had one goal and four points in nine games this season.

In his absence, rookie Stefan Matteau has been playing on the top line with Travis Zajac and Ilya Kovalchuk. The team also reacquired forward Alexei Ponikarovsky on Wednesday from the Winnipeg Jets in exchange for a pair of draft picks.
