Flyers captain Mike Richards will undergo surgery to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder Friday, the Courier-Post learned Tuesday.
According to club general manager Paul Holmgren, Richards is expected to need 10-12 weeks of recovery time.
Holmgren said he was also awaiting an MRI on Richards’ left shoulder, saying he might also require surgery on that shoulder as well. Richards, who Tuesday was named one of three finalists for the Selke Tro phy as the NHL’s top defensive forward, led the Flyers with five playoff points in six games.
