Bolts' Ohlund to have knee surgery

The Tampa Bay Lightning announced Monday that defenseman Mattias Ohlund will have left knee surgery later in the week.

The 35-year-old Swede hasn't played a game this season because of the troublesome knee, which has plagued him since early October.

Thursday's procedure will be performed by renowned specialist Anthony Miniaci, who will utilize a thin layer of titanium to resurface the bottom of the femur behind the kneecap in hopes of creating a cushion that will prevent painful bone-on-bone friction.

A timetable for Ohlund's return is not yet known.

Ohlund has registered 93 goals and 250 assists in 909 career games with Vancouver and Tampa Bay.
