RALEIGH, NC—
Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that defenseman Bret Hedican will undergo surgery to repair a torn ligament in his left ring finger. Hedican will travel to Vail, CO, where Dr. Randy Viola will perform the procedure at Vail Valley Medical Center on Friday. Hedican is expected to miss three to four weeks of action following the surgery.

Hedican, 36, leads all Carolina defensemen this season, averaging 20:53 of ice time per game and ranks third on the team with 61 blocked shots.
