New York Islanders forward Cal Clutterbuck is out indefinitely after undergoing surgery on his wrist, the team announced Saturday.

In a fluke play, Patrice Bergeron's skate cut Clutterbuck's wrist open during Thursday's game against the Boston Bruins.

Clutterbuck received a severe gash on his left wrist. He needed some tendons repaired, but fortunately, the injury wasn't life-threatening, according to The Athletic's Arthur Staple.

Clutterbuck has recorded seven points and 116 hits in 33 games this season.

Andrew Ladd, who cleared waivers last month, has been recalled from the minors in Clutterbuck's absence. The 34-year-old has notched seven goals and two assists in 19 games with the Bridgeport Sound Tigers this season.

There are four seasons remaining on Ladd's seven-year, $38.5-million deal he signed with the Isles on July 1, 2016.
