Mikkel Boedker Out 4-6 Weeks After Having His Spleen Removed

from Sarah McLellan of AZCentralSports,

Coyotes winger Mikkel Boedker damaged his spleen following a hit in Sunday's game against the Jets, requiring surgery that night to remove it, General Manager Don Maloney confirmed Tuesday.

The surgery was successful, and Boedker is expected to be fine, the team said. He remains in Winnipeg but could return to Arizona in the next two to three days, Maloney said.

A timeline for a return could be in the four-to-six week range, Maloney said.

"It's not like he can jump on the ice and return to Philadelphia (next Tuesday)," Maloney said. "These take anywhere from three to four to five to six weeks depending on how people recover from surgery."
