Steve Downie will undergo season-ending knee surgery to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament.
The Avalanche made the announcement on Wednesday after the rugged forward was injured on Tuesday night in a game against Los Angeles. Downie had one assist and six penalty minutes in two games before his 2013 season came to a premature end. He is a solid source of penalty minutes and he can chip in offensively. Start looking elsewhere for a replacement for your fantasy squad if you picked him.
