NEW YORK, N.Y. - Rangers captain Chris Drury will have surgery on his left knee and be sidelined for six weeks.

New York coach John Tortorella made the announcement of Drury's injury after practice on Wednesday. Drury sat out the Rangers' previous two road games because of the troublesome knee that Tortorella said was bothering the centre for a couple of weeks.

Drury has played in only 23 of New York's 56 games this season and has no goals and just four assists. The 34-year-old forward broke his left index finger twice, causing him to miss 32 of the first 33 games.
