New Jersey Devils defenceman Paul Martin has setback, out another 4 weeks

New Jersey Devils defenceman Paul Martin will be sidelined another month after having a setback in his recovery from a broken left forearm.

Devils general manager Lou Lamoriello said Wednesday that Martin had minor arm surgery on Tuesday. The Devils executive said the outside of the fracture was healing but the inside was not healing at the rate the doctors wanted.

Martin broke his arm on Oct. 24 when he was hit by a Bill Guerin shot in a game at Pittsburgh.

Martin is a candidate for the U.S. Olympic team. Lamoriello thinks there still is a chance he can play when hockey action at the Games gets underway on Feb. 16.
