Red Wings’ Luke Glendening out 3-4 months with ankle surgery

DETROIT — Ankle surgery should have Detroit Red Wings forward Luke Glendening ready for next season – but he still could end up with another home.

The Wings announced today that Glendening underwent successful surgery to repair tendon damage on his left ankle. Glendening was injured in the March 27 game at Carolina, and missed the last seven games of the season. Originally it was thought he wouldn’t need surgery for what was diagnosed as a fractured ankle and partially torn tendons.

“Original diagnosis was weeks off would heal,” general manager Ken Holland told the Free Press. “Wasn’t getting better. Decided to have surgery now so he can ready for training camp and not sick needing surgery during the season.
