Blair Betts to stay away from playing for 2-3 weeks

A Canadian professional ice hockey centre, Blair Betts, underwent foot surgery Friday. His recovery will take about two or three weeks.

In Betts’ absence the New York Rangers are going to give a spot to Petr Prucha, who has stayed away from 15 games due to shoulder injury.

During the 2006-07 season Betts found success on the Rangers defensive 4th line. He was mostly paired with Colton Orr and Ryan Hollweg. Betts also was a key factor on the penalty kill. He was one of the Rangers most consistent faceoff men with 52.3 percent of faceoffs won. He was first on the team with 1186 faceoffs taken. He was also 6th on the team, 1st among forwards, with 98 blocked shots and led the team with 276 minutes and 42 seconds of short handed time on ice.
