    Khabibulin Out For 12 Weeks

    Edmonton Oilers goaltender Nikolai Khabibulin will have surgery to repair a herniated disk in his back and is expected to be out 12 weeks.

    The team said Wednesday that he'll have the operation Thursday in Los Angeles. The Oilers didn't provide a timeline for his return, saying only that he's "out indefinitely," but Khabibulin's agent, Jay Grossman, said the goalie will need 12 weeks to recover from surgery.

    That leaves him a narrow window to try and return during the regular season.

    Khabibulin hasn't played since a 3-2 shootout loss to Columbus on Nov. 16. He has a 7-9-2 record with a 3.03 goals-against average and a .910 save percentage this season.

    I wanted to see him have success in Edmunton, but now he might not be back for the rest of the season.

    Even if Khabibulin was playing we'd be done.
