More surgery for Boucher

Goaltender Nick Boucher, who led the Komets to four championships in five years, and was the team's MVP last season, has had another surgery.

He had a procedure performed on his wrist, though he said it won't affect the timetable of his return to hockey.

Boucher had already had two hip surgeries since last season.

He is not under contract with any teams, though he has informally skated with the Komets.

He is at least a month away from being able to play again.

The wrist injury was suffered in 2010-11.
