Stuart has surgery to repair broken jaw
DETROIT -- Red Wings defenseman Brad Stuart underwent surgery on Thursday to repair a broken jaw suffered on January 7 in Calgary.

While initial evaluation revealed fractures that did not require surgery, additional examinations deemed surgery was necessary to insert two plates to help stabilize the fractures in his jaw. The surgery was successfully performed in California by Dr. Louis Claymon.

The surgery is not expected to change the original diagnosis of 6-8 weeks of recovery before Stuart is able to return to the Red Wings' lineup.
