North Dakota announced Tuesday that senior forward Mark MacMillan will undergo surgery on Wednesday to repair a lower-body injury and will be out of action indefinitely.

MacMillan suffered the injury during North Dakota’s 3-1 victory over St. Cloud State last Saturday in Grand Forks, N.D.

On the season, MacMillan leads top-ranked UND with a career-high 16 goals, ranks third on the team in scoring with 25 points and his 13 goals during conference play lead the NCHC.

A fourth-round draft pick of the Montreal Canadiens in 2010, MacMillan has posted 99 points (46 goals, 53 assists) in 151 career games and this season, is a finalist for both the Hockey Humanitarian Award and the Senior CLASS Award.
