Pittsburgh Penguins forward Evgeni Malkin will undergo surgery Thursday to repair a torn ACL and torn MCL in his right knee, the team announced Wednesday.
Malkin suffered the injury against the Buffalo Sabres on Feb. 4 when defenseman Tyler Myers fell on Malkin's leg.
Malkin's rehabilitation will take six months, and he will be ready for the start of training camp in September, General Manager Ray Shero said.
Malkin, 24, had 15 goals and 22 assists for 37 points in 43 games this season.
