Defenseman needs shoulder surgery

OTTAWA -- Ottawa Senators defenseman Anton Volchenkov will have
shoulder surgery next week and could be out up to four months.

Volchenkov partially dislocated his right shoulder in the second
period of Monday's 2-2 tie with Boston. Ottawa placed him on
injured reserve Tuesday.

Volchenkov, in his second season with the Senators, has a goal
and two assists. In 73 career games, he has four goals and 15
assists.
