Jets prospect has surgery.

We had seen Logan Stanley around the MTS Centre the last few days and I had read a Windsor Spitfires tweet that he was out with a lower-body injury.  Turns out he had a torn meniscus in his right knee which required surgery according to the team web site:

General Manager Warren Rychel has announced defenceman Logan Stanley will miss about four months after having surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee.  The injury occurred during the club’s 4-3 shootout loss in Kitchener back on January 17th.  Rychel says the surgery, which took place today in Winnipeg, puts Stanley’s availability for the 2017 Mastercard Memorial Cup (May 18th to 28th) tournament in doubt.

Not great news for the Jets prospect defenceman that the team selected in the 1st round of the 2016 NHL Entry Draft (18th overall) back in Buffalo last summer.  The Jets signed the tall prospect to a three year entry level deal back in December.  In 35 games with Windsor this season he has four goals and 13 assists.
