Draper Out 4-6 Weeks

via Ansar Khan of Mlive,

Detroit Red Wings forward Kris Draper will have surgery for a sports hernia on Thursday and is expected to be out an additional four-to-six weeks, general manager Ken Holland said.

Draper saw Dr. William Meyers in Philadelphia today. Meyers is a specialist who performed the same surgery on Draper three years ago (back then it was on his right side, now it’s on his left).

In cased you missed the earlier news, Johan Franzen has been cleared to play on Thursday against Calgary.
