Boston College sophomore defenseman Steve Santini will miss the remainder of the first half of the season following scheduled wrist surgery on Tuesday afternoon.
“Our priority is for Steve to get healthy,” BC coach Jerry York said in a statement. “His presence will be missed throughout this stretch of tough competition ahead of us, but we are looking forward to him returning to our club just after the New Year.”
Santini suffered the injury in the middle of the second period against Massachusetts on Oct. 25.
In 39 career games with the Eagles, the New Jersey Devils’ prospect has four goals and eight assists for 12 points, along with a plus-27 rating.
