Winnipeg Jets defenceman Zach Bogosian will miss four to six months after undergoing wrist surgery on Friday.

“After speaking with Dr. Thomas Graham this morning, surgery on the chronic ligament tear in the right wrist of Winnipeg Jets defenseman Zach Bogosian was successful. The prognosis for a return to hockey from this type of surgery is typically between four and six months," said Jet's head physician Dr. peter Macdonald in a statement.

Bogosian experienced discomfort in the wrist during off-season training and was diagnosed with a chronic ligament tear in his right wrist.

“We are pleased the procedure on Zach's right wrist was successful this morning. This wrist has been an issue which has troubled him for the past couple of seasons dating back to his time in Atlanta and forced him to miss games with the Jets last season," said Jet' general manager Kevin Cheveldayoff in a statement.

"While we are disappointed Zach will be out for an extended period of time, we look forward to getting him to Winnipeg to begin his rehab with our training staff and getting him back on the ice as soon as possible."

Bogosian had five goals and 25 assists in 65 games with the Jets last season.
