The surgery will take place in Philadelphia (cue the conspiracy theorists!).
The folks in Ottawa might call this a case of poetic justice. Wolski did not face any supplementary discipline for his collision with Daniel Alfredsson a little over a week ago, a hit that concussed the Sens captain. Brendan Shanahan explained it as an accidental collision where Wolski was bracing for a hit.
In six games this season, Wolski has two assists. His first game back from the injury will be his 400th of his career and he is nine goals away from 100 for his career.
Rangers fans were hoping this would be the season Wolski showed the form he flashed in Phoenix when he had career highs with 80 games, 23 goals and 45 assists two seasons ago. Instead, he's dealing with his second injury of the young season (a groin issue sidelined him previously).
