Flyers' Hatcher has knee surgery

Philadelphia Flyers defenseman Derian Hatcher underwent successful surgery on his right knee Thursday.

"Derian Hatcher's surgery went well,” said GM Paul Holmgren. “Hatcher had a piece of cartilage removed from his right knee today in Philadelphia by Dr. Peter DeLuca. Dr. DeLuca believes that this is what was causing the disturbance in his knee. We are looking to have him back in about four weeks."

Hatcher, 35, has posted two assists and two penalty minutes in nine games for the Flyers this season.
