Svechnikov to undergo surgery on broken hand

Andrei Svechnikov could miss eight weeks because of a broken hand and will undergo surgery Tuesday, according to TSN’s Bob McKenzie.

He is second in Future Considerations’ preliminary ranking for the 2018 NHL Draft.

Svenchnikov, who had 10 goals and 14 points in 10 games to start the season with the Barrie Colts of the Ontario Hockey League, is expected to miss eight weeks. The injury could force him to miss the 2018 IIHF World Junior Championship.

The 17-year-old was selected first overall in the CHL Import Draft last June.
