Havlat Update

via the CP,
Star winger Martin Havlat of the Ottawa Senators had his dislocated right shoulder re-examined by specialist Dr. Anthony Miniaci at the Cleveland Clinic on Wednesday. Miniaci was scheduled to consult with Senators physician Don Chow and team officials after the examination. Havlat must decide whether or not to have surgery, which would knock him out for four to six months. He could also decide to simply wait it out and hope the shoulder heals on its own over the next few weeks.

Havlat decided Wednesday to have surgery to repair his dislocated right shoulder, but hopes to be back in time for playoffs. Specialist Dr. Anthony Miniaci made the recommendation after re-examining Havlat at the Cleveland Clinic. "It's really disappointing," Havlat said in a conference call from Cleveland. "It's always bad if you can't play, if you can't be a part of the team on the ice. "
