Emelin had arthroscopic knee surgery Wednesday, with a recovery timeline of 4-to-6 weeks.

Emelin missed six games toward the end of the 2016-17 campaign with a lower-body injury that was likely the same malady that required surgery. He'll have plenty of time to get ready for training camp in September. Of course, the 31-year-old has never reached the 20-point mark in his career, so fantasy owners should look elsewhere for blue-line scoring.
