Huskins has surgery, out 4-6 weeks.

Defenseman Kent Huskins underwent surgery today on his fractured right foot at the Kerlan-Jobe Center in Los Angeles. Huskins, who hasn’t played since Dec. 31, will miss an additional 4-6 weeks. Team doctors didn’t expect Huskins to require surgery initially, but apparently the bone wasn’t healing as hoped for. Huskins had surgery to stabilize the fracture by inserting two screws into the ankle. The surgery was performed by Dr. Ken Jung.

This would appear to leave an opening for a defenseman (probably Brendan Mikkelson) to come up from Iowa, but no moves are expected today.
