NEW YORK -- New York Rangers defenseman Michal Rozsival will undergo right knee surgery and be sidelined for two weeks, the team announced Wednesday.

Rozsival will undergo a procedure to repair a medial meniscus
tear. The surgery will be performed by Dr. Andrew Feldman and

afternoon.

Rozsival, 27, tied for the league lead last season with a
plus-minus rating of plus-35. He also played in all 82 games
and led the Rangers in scoring among defensemen with 30 points.
