Flames' Fuhr Has Knee Surgery

December 27, 1999
CALGARY, Alberta (AP) -- Grant Fuhr underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right knee last Tuesday and will be sidelined at least three weeks, the Calgary Flames confirmed.

Dr. Nicholas Mohtadi removed scar tissue and cleaned rough surfaces in the knee in what Flames general manager Al Coates described as a routine procedure.

Fred Brathwaite will replace Fuhr in goal for the Flames, while Jean-Sebastien Giguere has been called up from the Saint John Flames of the AHL.

Fuhr, 37, has had problems with his knee since he was injured in the 1996 playoffs while with the St. Louis Blues.

Brathwaite is 8-7-2 with a 2.20 goals-against average and .923 save percentage.

Fuhr is 5-9-2 with a 3.66 GAA and a .858 save percentage.
