March 30, 2011 |  4:34 pm

Lfyx18nc Anze Kopitar, the Kings 23-year-old star center, had successful surgery Wednesday to repair torn ligaments in his right ankle, the team said.

"It went well and he remains out indefinitely," a club spokesman said, declining to elaborate.

Kopitar, who still leads the Kings with 73 points, was injured Saturday during the second period of the Kings' 4-1 victory over Colorado. He is scheduled to start rehab work as soon as possible but will not be back this season.
