MONTREAL – The Montreal Canadiens announced Friday that defenseman Andrei Markov will undergo a knee surgery on Wednesday, December 8. The surgery, to repair a meniscus and reconstruct the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), will be performed in Alabama by doctor James Andrews.

“We are very confident that Andrei will be able to fully recover from this injury,” said Canadiens’ general manager Pierre Gauthier.

The 31-year old Russian defenseman will not return this season. Markov suffered a knee injury during a game on November 13 against Carolina at the Bell Centre and missed the team’s last nine outings.

Markov registered 3 points (1 goal, 2 assists) in seven games with the Canadiens this season. He missed the first 10 games of the season, from October 7 to 29, due to a knee injury suffered on April 30, 2010.
