(TSX / STATS) -- New Jersey Devils top prospect Michael McLeod underwent successful surgery on his left knee Thursday morning, the team announced.

McLeod, the No. 12 overall pick in the 2016 draft, had a torn meniscus in his left knee repaired, Devils vice president/general manager Ray Shero said.

The 19-year-old McLeod is expected to be sidelined for 4-to-6 weeks. He suffered the injury during a preseason game against the New York Islanders on Sept. 25.

The 6-foot-2, 188-pound McLeod has yet to play in an NHL regular-season game. He had 27 goals and 46 assists in 57 games last season with the Mississauga Steelheads of the Ontario Hockey League.
