Islanders’ Cal Clutterbuck out indefinitely after wrist surgery

New York Islanders' Cal Clutterbuck has an awkward collision with Patrice Bergeron that results in a nasty looking cut on his wrist from an errant skate, he would head to the locker room immediately.

New York Islanders forward Cal Clutterbuck underwent successful wrist surgery and is out indefinitely, according to the team. In a corresponding move, forward Andrew Ladd was recalled from the AHL’s Bridgeport Sound Tigers.

Clutterbuck sustained a wrist injury during Thursday’s game against the Boston Bruins, when he hit Patrice Bergeron in the neutral zone. Bergeron lost his balance and his left skate blade went skyward, cutting Clutterbuck just below his glove.

In 33 games with the Islanders this season, Clutterbuck is plus-seven with seven points.

The 34-year-old Ladd, a two-time Stanley Cup champion who debuted in the 2005-06 season, has nine points in 19 games with the Sound Tigers. He has yet to play in the NHL this year.
