Winnipeg Jets defenceman Zach Bogosian will undergo wrist surgery, the NHL club announced Thursday.

The Jets said the procedure will be performed Friday in Cleveland by Dr. Thomas Graham.

“Winnipeg Jets defenceman, Zach Bogosian, has been diagnosed with a chronic ligament tear in his right wrist,” Jets head physician Dr. Peter MacDonald said in a statement. “During off-season training, Zach experienced discomfort and was limited in his performance.”

The 6-foot-3, 215-pound American had five goals and 25 assists in 65 games with Winnipeg last season.
