Ben Holmstrom will have surgery on his knee Thursday, but a timetable for his return to Adirondack's lineup is unclear at this time.

"We won't know the significance and damage until the doctor gets in there," said Philadelphia GM Paul Holmgren. "He has a cartilage issue with that ACL that was repaired when he was 17. So, this is a re-injury of the same knee. We're hoping it's just stretched and they don't have to [fully repair] it." If his ACL is torn then he could be out for months.
