From Darren Dreger at TSN:
Veteran free-agent forward Glen Murray will have additional ankle surgery on November 11th. It’s the same ankle that was surgically repaired in Boston in April.
This follow up surgery, according to Murray’s agent Anton Thun is to repair a secondary injury that Murray did not become fully aware of until September when he started to feel pain.
Following initial surgery at the end of last season, the Boston Bruins opted to buy the 35-year old Murray out of the final year of his contract, paying two-thirds, or $2.76 million of the $4.1 million owing.
Murray is physically unable to play and because the secondary injury was discovered after the buyout he and Thun are conducting an investigation to prove this injury is pre-existing and should have prohibited the Bruins from buying him out.
Dreger also states that Murray will be filing a grievance with the NHLPA.
