Chicago Blackhawks forward Daniel Carcillo will undergo reconstructive left knee surgery Tuesday, sidelining him for the rest of the year.
Carcillo was helped off the ice after he launched Edmonton's Tom Gilbert into the boards during the second period of the Oilers' 4-3 victory Jan. 2. The 26-year-old Carcillo received a major boarding penalty and a game misconduct for the hit, and was later suspended for seven games.
Team physician Dr. Michael Terry anticipates a ''full return'' for Carcillo in six months.
Carcillo had two goals, nine assists and 82 penalty minutes in 28 games in his first season with Chicago.
The Blackhawks also activated forward Marcus Kroger from injured reserve Friday and sent forward Ben Smith to Rockford of the American Hockey League.

The Blackhawks played the Red Wings for the 3rd time in 16 days, this time at the Joe in Detroit. Judging by the previous two games, you knew a couple of things for sure. One that it was going to be a great game, and secondly that it would probably be a close score. It didn’t look that way at first, by any means, but it would end up that way. More on that later.
