Per Jesse Spector on Twitter (Twitter is blocked at work, link will come later), winger Wojtek Wolski will be out a minimum of four weeks, as he will be undergoing sports hernia surgery. Wolski has been bothered by a groin injury all season, and it has limited him to just six of the Rangers first 13 games. The surgery will hopefully correct any lingering issues he has been suffering from this season. This might also mean that maybe coach John Tortorella’s shot at Wolski about the getting out of the tub may have been a tab premature.
Wolski was placed on IR yesterday, and will be there for the next four to six weeks. Erik Christensen and Sean Avery will be safe in the lineup for now, until either Wolski or Mike Rupp (also having surgery) return.
