COLUMBUS -- Columbus Blue Jackets forward Kristian Huselius underwent successful surgery to repair a torn right pectoral muscle on Thursday.

The procedure was performed at Ohio Orthopedic Center of Excellence in Columbus by Dr. Larry Watson.

"The surgery went very well," said Blue Jackets general manager Scott Howson. "The rehabilitation time for this type of injury is typically several months and we expect Kristian to make a full recovery."

Huselius suffered the injury while lifting weights back in Sweden some time last week. He had missed time last season because of lower body injury and played in a career-low 39 games, scoring 14 goals with nine assists.

In 660 career games with Florida, Calgary and Columbus, the former second- round draft pick of the Panthers has compiled 190 goals and 261 helpers.
