Winnipeg Jets forward Nikolaj Ehlers will undergo sports hernia surgery next week, coach Rick Bowness announced Saturday.

Ehlers had not played since Oct. 17 but returned to the ice to skate by himself on Wednesday. It is not immediately known if he aggravated the injury on that day or how long he will be sidelined.

Ehlers, 26, notched three assists in his first two games of the season.

He has recorded 361 points (164 goals, 197 assists) in 480 career games since being selected by the Jets with the ninth overall pick of the 2014 NHL Draft.
