On Tuesday, Artem Anisimov had surgery on his right wrist.
According to the Blackhawks, Anisimov should return to “full hockey activities” in approximately six to eight weeks. He is not competing with Artemi Panarin on behalf of Russia at the World Championship because of the injury.
Anisimov, 27, scored 20 goals and added 22 assists in his first season in Chicago. He signed a five-year extension with the Blackhawks after he was acquired in the trade sending Brandon Saad to Columbus.
