Montreal Canadiens defenceman Andrei Markov will undergo knee surgery next Wednesday and will miss the remainder of the season.

In a team release, the Canadiens said that Markov needs the surgery to repair his meniscus and reconstruct his ACL.

The news puts an end to speculation over the severity of Markov's injury; the 31-year-old defenceman injured his knee November 13 against Carolina and has missed Montreal's last nine games.

Markov has only played in seven games this season after missing the start of the season due to a knee injury suffered during last year's playoffs. Through seven games, the veteran had one goal and two assists.
