SEATTLE (AP) — The Seattle Kraken will be without forward Jaden Schwartz for at least a month due to a hand injury that will require surgery.

Schwartz has not played since being injured on Dec. 29 against Philadelphia. 

He was a scratch in Seattle’s next two games and the decision to have surgery was made with the Kraken on an extended break due to postponements. 

The team says Schwartz would miss four to six weeks. 

Schwartz has six goals and 14 assists in 29 games for Seattle. 

He is tied for the team lead in assists and second on the team in points.
