Wisniewski to have surgery

Thanks to reader eternale1 for pointing this out:

Chicago Blackhawks defenseman James Wisniewski tore his anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee during training and will have surgery. The team said Thursday he should be able to return during next season.

The 24-year-old Wisniewski played 68 games last season and had seven goals and 19 assists.

At least it doesn't sound extremely serious, but I worry about when he will be able to return. Does this mean he won't be ready for the start of the season? Ugh, the injuries are already starting.
