BOSTON -- Bruins defenseman Adam McQuaid's season is officially over.
|Adam McQuaid's season officially came to an end after undergoing surgery on his right ankle. McQuaid has been sidelined since Jan. 19.|
McQuaid, who has been sidelined since Jan. 19, underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right ankle last Thursday and will need eight weeks to recover, general manager Peter Chiarelli said in a statement released Sunday.
McQuaid was seen Saturday on crutches with a cast on his right foot, but coach Claude Julien would not elaborate on the defenseman's condition earlier Sunday.
"I don't know the full details of McQuaid so I will let either Peter or somebody elaborate more on that," Julien said.
McQuaid's problem originally was described as a quad injury. He attempted to come back a few times, but suffered multiple setbacks.
