Entries with the tag: surgery
Ottawa Senators captain Daniel Alfredsson will have back surgery on Friday, and will need about four-to-six weeks to recover.
The 39-year-old was bothered by a lower back injury last season, and was shut down in February after 54 games.
From On the Rangers Beat,
Avery—-already sidelined once this season with a shoulder separation——will not only miss the Islanders game, but several more after arthroscopic surgery to clean out his left wrist tomorrow at 5:30 p.m.
Avery—-who reinjured the wrist against Tampa when hit by a shot—- practiced without shooting today, but was waiting for resuslts of a CAT scan on the wrist, which has bothered him since the start of the season. He said afterward that the decision had been made and didn’t know how long he would be sidelined. Avery said he had been playing with a fracture, and was worsened during a fight five games after he returned—-we’re thinking with Darcy Tucker in Toronto.
“Hopefully, it’ll only be a week or two,” he said. “But I don’t live in a reality world.”
