Winnipeg Jets defenceman Derek Meech is expected to miss at least six weeks after undergoing surgery to repair a lower-body injury.

He was placed on the injured reserve list after he was hurt in a game against the Ottawa Senators on Oct. 20.

Meech, a Winnipeg native, did not record a point in two games this season. He has 16 points (four goals, 12 assists) in 128 career NHL games with the Jets and Detroit Red Wings.
