Chicago Blackhawks center Marcus Kruger will miss approximately four months after dislocating his left wrist, the team announced.
Kruger underwent surgery Friday to repair the wrist and is anticipated to “return to hockey activities” in around four months.
Kruger, 25, has not scored a goal this season and has just one assist in 33 games, but is a key member of Chicago’s penalty kill unit and considered one of the team’s best defensive forwards. He was a member of the Blackhawks’ Stanley Cup-winning teams in 2013 and 2015.
