New Jersey Devils centre Travis Zajac will be sidelined for eight to 10 weeks after tearing his left Achilles tendon.

He had surgery Thursday in his hometown of Winnipeg, where he was injured during an off-ice training session.

The normally durable 26-year-old native will miss training camp and the start of the 20-11-12 season.

Zajac did not miss a game in any of the past four seasons, extending his iron man streak to 401 games. He had 13 goals and 31 assists in 82 games in 2010-11 for the Devils.
