All Black midfielder Tamati Ellison will miss most of the Highlanders' Super Rugby campaign.
Ellison has undergone surgery to repair a damaged right shoulder and is expected to be out for six months.
If the rehab goes to plan, Ellison could be available after June's International test window.
The Highlanders have also lost former New Zealand sevens player Declan O'Donnell to a shoulder injury as well.
