Since Grant played in just five games to start the season, he will apply for and should receive a medical hardship waiver, which means he will still have three years of eligibility remaining starting next season.
"Obviously, it's not good for our hockey team," Jutting said. "But the good thing is it happened early enough in the season where he can get a medial redshirt and not lose a year of eligibility."
Grant will have the surgery in his hometown of Oklahoma City after first-semester classes end in early Deember.
Grant was expected to be one of the Mavericks' top returning players this season. He had no points after being shut down. Last year he had eight goals and 12 assists in 33 games.
