Rangers D Shattenkirk to have knee surgery

NEW YORK (AP) Rangers defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk will have surgery on his left knee and is expected to be out indefinitely.

The prized free-agent acquisition, who signed a four-year, $26.6 million deal to come to his hometown team, said Friday he has been playing through an injury all season and felt "it was the right time to get the surgery."

Shattenkirk has five goals and 18 assists in 43 games for the Rangers after totaling 13 goals and 43 assists over 80 games for St. Louis and Washington last season. Other than the lockout-shortened 2012-13 season, he has had at least 30 assists and 40 points every year - one of just 14 defensemen in NHL history to accomplish the feat in six of their first seven seasons.
