James van Riemsdyk will require surgery after breaking his foot on Thursday and could miss up to six weeks if not more.

It sees like a lost season for JVR who was finally coming around and finally seemed to be healthy.  Van Riemsdyk is scheduled to have the operation on March 6 and it's entirely possible that Van Riemsdyk will be unavailable until the playoffs.

He has 11 goals and 24 points in 43 games this season.
