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 a meniscus tear in the knee that he has been playing through all season.

"It's come to a point now where, looking at all the options trying to stick it out or make it through the season, with the way it's kind of been going I think it's the right time to get the surgery and handle it," Shattenkirk said. "Take care of it before it becomes something that we don't want to do down the line, later in the season that will put me out of the crucial part of the season."
