Ottawa Senators forward Milan Michalek underwent surgery last Tuesday in Philadelphia to repair a torn abdominal muscle, an injury he suffered during training last month, and will be sidelined 4-6 weeks.

The injury means the 27-year-old winger becomes the only player on the team roster who is not officially locked out by the NHL. Under the lockout rules, Michalek is allowed to go the rink and get treatment for his injury. He can also use the facilities to work out.

The injured forward will also continue to be paid. Michalek is scheduled to make US$4,750,000 this season.

Michalek recorded 35 goals and 25 assists in 77 games last season.
