BOSTON — Boston Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli revealed today that winger Marco Sturm has surgery scheduled for Tuesday.
Sturm, out since Dec. 18 with a left knee injury, will have his meniscus repaired and it’s “probable” that he’ll also need his ACL repaired. Should he require surgery on his ACL, it’s highly unlikely he’d be able to return to play this season.
In 19 games this season, Sturm totaled seven goals and six assists for 13 points. A six-time 20-goal scorer, Sturm had missed 12 games with concussion-like symptoms before he returned against Toronto Dec. 18. That night he suffered the injury when he awkwardly went into the endboards.
