Dan Carcillo's season is over.

On Friday afternoon, the Chicago Blackhawks announced that forward Dan Carcillo is going to miss the rest of the 2011-2012 season after undergoing reconstructive surgery on his left anterior cruciate ligament. Head Team Physician Dr. Michael Terry:

"Daniel Carcillo will undergo anterior cruciate ligament reconstructive surgery on Tuesday, Jan. 17. This decision was made today after much evaluation and consideration of various options. We anticipate a full return in six months."

Carcillo injured the knee during an illegal hit on Edmonton's Tom Gilbert. That hit also earned Carcillo a seven-game suspension. In his first season with the Blackhawks, the winger had 11 points in 28 games.
