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.
We have no doubt how he can play. You don't, with four teams that are left, you're not getting here without good goaltending. All great goalies left, and [Bishop] is a top-tier goaltender in this league and he's shown it.
