Vancouver Canucks defenseman Alexander Edler is having back surgery and will be out indefinitely.
Edler, who leads the Canucks with 24 minutes of ice time a game and tops the team's defense with 32 points, missed Wednesday's NHL game against Nashville.
The team announced on Thursday he will have microdiscectomy surgery, which relieves pressure on a herniated disc.
There was no timeline for his return.
Edler, who plays on the top power-play unit and kills penalties, was injured during Monday's win over Dallas. The 24-year-old Swede finished the game.
