Rangers Could Lose Gaborik For Six Months Due To Rotator Cuff Surgery

via NHL.com,

New York Rangers right wing Marian Gaborik reportedly has to undergo rotator cuff surgery and will be out for up to six months, meaning he will likely not be able to start the 2012-13 NHL season.

Gaborik was asked earlier this week at Rangers breakup day in Greenburgh, N.Y. if he needed any surgery to get anything cleaned up. He didn’t want to talk about it then, but he informed the Slovakian newspaper SME that he needs to have the surgery after playing through the injury for nearly two months.

He reportedly had an MRI on Tuesday that revealed the damage.

Gaborik was clearly not himself in the playoffs as he was limited to only 11 points in 20 games after putting up 41 goals and 76 points in 82 regular-season games.
