Chicago - The Chicago Blackhawks announced on Tuesday that defenseman Jordan Hendry underwent successful surgery to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.

"Reconstructive surgery to repair Jordan's left knee ACL tear went well today," said Blackhawks team physician Dr. Michael Terry. "We anticipate a full recovery in approximately six months."

The 27-year-old was hurt on a hit into the end boards by Phoenix captain Shane Doan during a 4-3 shootout victory over the Coyotes on February 27.

Hendry, a sturdy stay-at-home defenseman, recorded one goal and 13 points in 37 games with Chicago this season.
