Blackhawks defenceman Jordan Hendry to have reconstructive surgery on left knee

CHICAGO – Blackhawks defenceman Jordan Hendry will have surgery to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.

Hendry was injured during Sunday’s win over Phoenix in a collision along the boards with the Coyotes’ Shane Doan. In statement released Monday, team physician Dr. Michael Terry says he anticipates a full recovery in about six months.

The 27-year-old Hendry has four goals and nine assists in 129 regular-season games over the last four seasons. He appeared in 15 playoff games last season, helping the Blackhawks win their first championship since 1961.
