Newark, NJ - The New Jersey Devils provided the following medical updates on forwards Taylor Hall and Patrick Maroon and goaltender Cory Schneider.
On Friday, April 30, Taylor Hall underwent successful surgery to repair torn ligaments in his left hand. The procedure was performed by Dr. Robert Hotchkiss. Hall suffered the initial injury in late December, but was able to play with it under the care and management of New Jersey's medical staff. It was not the injury that kept him out of the All-Star Game in January. He will be ready for training camp in September.
Last Tuesday, Cory Schneider underwent successful surgery to repair torn cartilage in his left hip. The procedure was performed by Dr. Bryan Kelly. Schneider's recovery time is approximately five months and Dr. Kelly expects him to make a full recovery. Further updates regarding his progress will be provided later in the summer as available.
On Wednesday, Patrick Maroon underwent successful surgery to repair a herniated disc in his back. The procedure was performed by Dr. Andrew Sama. He will be able to resume off-season training and preparation programs before the start of training camp.
All three players will continue to be under the care and observation of the team's medical and training staffs throughout the off-season recovery process.
