Kopitar Won’t Be Healthy Until The Summer

from Rich Hammond at Kings.com,

Kings center Anze Kopitar is scheduled to undergo surgery on Wednesday to repair torn ligaments in his right ankle and is expected to be ready for the start of next season.

Based on initial diagnosis, done immediately after Kopitar was hurt in Saturday afternoon’s game against Colorado, there had been hope that Kopitar’s recovery time would be limited to six weeks, but that depended on the results of an MRI.

That MRI, done Monday morning, revealed torn ligaments caused by a high ankle sprain, the team said, and Kopitar isn’t likely to return to the ice until the middle of summer.
