Ducks center Ryan Getzlaf underwent successful sports hernia surgery today. The injury was aggravated during summer workouts and did not improve over time, therefore surgery was recommended by the Ducks medical staff.
The surgery was performed by Dr. William Meyers in Philadelphia.
Getzlaf is expected to be ready for training camp.
I spent a long summer thinking about that playoff series and what could have been. [The Blackhawks] ended up being the Stanley Cup champions, so we know we lost to a very good team. It's tough to know how close we were, and it motivates us for this year.
