Colorado Avalanche captain Joe Sakic, already sidelined by back problems, broke three fingers in a snow blower accident and will be out at least three months.

The Avalanche said Sakic underwent surgery Tuesday night for the broken fingers and tendon damage. The team said he's expected to make a full recovery.

The snow blower accident occurred at Sakic's home Tuesday afternoon, but the team hasn't given any details.

Sakic is being treated for a herniated disc, which was expected to keep him out until mid-January.
