The Colorado Avalanche Hockey Club announced Sunday that defenseman Patrice Brisebois will undergo surgery to repair a herniated disc. Brisebois will be sidelined for the remainder of the regular season.
"After extensive rehabilitation, further examination and a series of MRI tests, it was determined that surgery was his best option to correct this problem," said Avalanche Head Athletic Trainer Matthew Sokolowski.
Brisebois injured his back during a game on Dec. 27 against Dallas.
