"Of course, the important thing is that he receives the best treatment available to get him back as soon as possible but there's no doubt that it is hugely disappointing news for the player and the club.
"He's made a real impact since joining us and he's a player who has excited the supporters but as is the case in football we just have to deal with it and help him come back fitter and stronger."
Wright joined St Johnstone from Colchester Utd as a free agent in the summer and has made 14 league appearances helping the Saints up to fifth in the table and unbeaten in their last six.
