Cody Bass is finished for the season.

The Senators centre will have surgery later this week to repair a shoulder injury he suffered last week in a fight with Calgary's Eric Nystrom.

The Senators made a brief stop in Ottawa and hit the road for the Battle of Ontario tomorrow against the Maple Leafs.

"I'm not sure of the time frame, but it's obviously an extensive period," said coach Craig Hartsburg today.

There was some good news on the injury front. Defenceman Anton Volchenkov is ready to return from an upper body injury he suffered on Dec. 23 vs. the Flyers while Jesse Winchester is also going to return from a upper body injury that forced him out of five games.

Martin Gerber will make his third straight start.
