Seidenberg has surgery on wrist
The surgery was performed on Tuesday at Newton-Wellesley Hospital.
Seidenberg suffered the injury Saturday during the first period of the Bruins' game against the Maple Leafs when he boarded Nikolai Kulemin. Seidenberg, whose wrist was cut by one of Kulemin's skates in the encounter, left the game and hasn't played since.
Acquired at the trade deadline from the Carolina Hurricanes, Seidenberg has been one of the Bruins' steadiest defensemen, averaging almost 23 minutes in 17 games and registering two goals and seven assists.
Stuart had surgery on an infected finger last weekend and is expected to miss two weeks, while Ference has missed the Bruins past six games.
Coach Claude Julien said at practice Tuesday that Ference likely wouldn't be available until the playoffs. Captain Zdeno Chara broke his nose Monday against the Capitals but isn't expected to miss any time.
