Rangers' Mike Rupp to miss 4 to 6 weeks following left knee surgery

NEW YORK, N.Y. - Rangers forward Mike Rupp is expected to miss four-to-six weeks after having surgery Wednesday to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee.

The rugged centre, who has played in only half of New York's 14 games this season, has sat out seven games since his last appearance on Oct. 24 at Winnipeg. Rupp has only one point in seven games—a game-winning goal at Vancouver on Oct. 18. The goal was scored on Rupp's lone shot this season.

Rupp, 31, joined the Rangers during the summer after leaving the Pittsburgh Penguins for a US$4.5-million, three-year contract. His injury prompted New York to recall Sean Avery from the AHL to help provide a physical presence in Rupp's absence.

Rupp has had two fights and 14 penalty minutes this season.
