Bruins center Jason Allison will miss the rest of the season after surgery to repair a torn wrist tendon, the team said Friday.
Allison had what was expected to be season-ending surgery last month on his thumb, but had held out the possibility of returning if he postponed the wrist surgery.
Allison underwent surgery Wednesday at Massachusetts General Hospital. General manager Harry Sinden said will need about three to four months of rehabilitation.
"We expect that Jason will be fully recovered by training camp and ready for next season," Sinden said.
Allison has led the Bruins in scoring in each of his two full seasons with the team. The 24-year-old played in 37 games this season with 10 goals and 18 assists. He has missed 21 games and will miss the remaining 24 games of the regular season.
