Chicago Blackhawks forward Alex Nylander is expected to miss four-to-six months after undergoing knee surgery, the team announced Wednesday.

The team said Nylander underwent surgery on his left knee Monday to repair a meniscus tear. The timeline means Nylander will miss at least the majority of the 2020-21 season.

Nylander, 22, had 10 goals and 26 points in 61 games with Chicago last season, his first with the team.

A first-round pick of the Buffalo Sabres in 2016, Nylander has 13 goals and 32 points in 84 career games with the Sabres and Blackhawks.
