BUFFALO -- New Jersey Devils left wing Brian Rolston will have sports hernia surgery Thursday and is expected to be out 4-to-6 weeks.

Rolston, who was injured in Saturday's game against Washington, has been placed on the team's long-term injured reserve list, meaning the club can free up about $5 million of salary cap room.

Last season, the veteran had 20 goals and 17 assists in 80 games.
