Winnipeg Jets forward Matt Halischuk underwent successful forearm surgery on Sunday to repair a fracture and will be out of action indefinitely.

The injury happened in the first period of Saturday's 6-4 loss to the Dallas Stars.

The 25-year-old Halischuk scored his third goal of the season in the first period of Saturday's contest before leaving the game with what was being called an upper-body injury.

The news comes on the same day the Jets learned that 24-year-old Anthony Peluso was suspended for three games for boarding Stars defenceman Alex Goligoski in Saturday's game.

Halischuk has three goals and four assists through 30 games this season.
