CHICAGO – With sometime to heal up after the team was eliminated from the playoffs, Artem Anisimov has gone under the knife to fix a nagging injury.

On Tuesday the Blackhawks forward underwent surgery to repair an issue with his right wrist that will put him out of hockey activities for around two months.

“Artem Anisimov underwent surgery today to repair an injury on his right wrist. The surgery went well. We anticipate his return to full hockey activities in approximately six to eight weeks,” said Blackhawks team physician Dr. Michael Terry.
