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.
They said, 'You're going to love the city. It's smaller than Philadelphia, but you're going to love it. You're going to love the fans. Just watching the playoffs last year, the fans seemed louder there than they did anywhere. I'm really excited about that.
