Columbus Blue Jackets forward Nathan Gerbe is expected to miss four to six months after undergoing hip surgery over the weekend.

Gerbe, who turned 34 earlier this summer, was expected to start the season in the AHL with the Cleveland Monsters, where he's played the majority of the past four seasons.  

Over the past two seasons, Gerbe has managed to play in 39 games for the Blue Jackets and 43 games for the Monsters. 

The setback means he will miss a good chunk of the season, though it's possible he'll be available to contribute in the back half of the season.
