The Wolves, in a release, just announced that Chase Budinger, who tore the meniscus in his left knee Saturday in Chicago, could be out up to four months following surgery Tuesday.

The Wolves said Budinger -- who sustained the injury with six minutes left in the fourth quarter when he caught his foot and twisted his left knee under the Wolves net -- had successful surgery to repair a lateral meniscus tear in the knee. The surgery was done by Dr. James Andrews at the Andrews Institute for Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine in Gulf Breeze, Florida. 

Budinger is expected to be out approximately 3-4 months, according to the team.
