Surgery ends Daniel Carcillo's season
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.
