Dallas Stars rookie center Tom Wandell will have season-ending knee surgery after tearing an anterior cruciate ligament last week.
The Stars put Wandell on the injured list on Thursday, a week after the 22-year-old Swede injured his left knee in a 4-3 loss to Vancouver.
Wandell had five goals and 10 assists in 50 NHL games and was tied for first on the team with three game-winning goals.
He was a fifth-round pick by Dallas in 2005. He spent most of last season in the Swedish Elite League, scoring 41 points in 51 games for Timra IK.
