Sutton to be sidelined 2 months with ankle injury

ATLANTA -- Atlanta Thrashers defenseman Andy Sutton is
expected to miss at least two months because of an ankle injury
that will require surgery to repair.

Sutton, set for surgery Tuesday, was injured in practice Nov. 27
and missed the last three games. An MRI revealed a torn tendon. The
31-year-old Sutton has one goal and seven assists in 25 games for
the first-place Thrashers.
