Ottawa Senators forward Josh Norris will undergo season-ending shoulder surgery.

The team said Monday that Norris will have the surgery at a “soon to be determined date.”

In a corresponding move, the Senators recalled 2020 first-round pick Ridly Greig from the AHL’s Belleville Senators.

Norris, 23, had been sidelined for nearly three months (38 games) after first sustaining the injury on Oct. 22 against Arizona. He returned Wednesday and played in three games, including Saturday’s loss to Winnipeg. He scored his first goal in three months in the loss.

It’s unclear when or how he reinjured the shoulder.

He finishes the season with two goals and three points in eight games. Norris has 93 points (54 goals, 39 assists) in 133 career games, all with the Senators.

He was playing in the first campaign of an eight-year, $63.6 million contract he signed in the offseason.

Norris was selected by San Jose with the 19th overall pick in the 2017 NHL Draft. He was part of the blockbuster trade that sent star defenseman Erik Karlsson to the Sharks on Sept. 13, 2018.
