Jake Guentzel Out 4-6 Months After Shoulder Surgery

via the Pittsburgh Penguins,

Pittsburgh Penguins forward Jake Guentzel underwent successful shoulder surgery, it was announced today by executive vice president and general manager Jim Rutherford.

The surgery was performed at UPMC Presbyterian Hospital by team physician, Dr. Dharmesh Vyas, and Dr. Ivan Tarkin of UPMC Orthopaedic Trauma Surgery. Guentzel is expected to miss four to six months.

Guentzel, 25, injured his right shoulder when he fell awkwardly into the boards while scoring his 20th goal of the season during the third period of the game last night against the Ottawa Senators. The NHL All-Star leads the team in goals (20) and points (43).

Watch the incident below.

Stevie Y should dangle AA in front of Rutherford to see if he bites.

I know he got injured but he might start feeling better if he gets traded to a team like Pittsburgh

Yeah, I hope Yzerman helps the Pens win while getting next to nothing in return.

Teams in win now mode who lose their leading scorer are usually the most desperate and give up a little more to keep winning and they also have 3 pretty decent goalies and last time I checked Detroit has none. A goalie and a couple picks or another prospect would be pretty fair for a streaky middle 6 forward
