Columbus Blue Jackets center Brandon Dubinsky is expected to be ready for the start of training camp in September following wrist surgery Monday.
Dubinsky's recovery will take about three months.
"Brandon had been experiencing discomfort in his wrist since the season ended and after an examination last week it was determined that surgery was the best course of action at this time," Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen said in a statement. "We expect that he'll be ready to go when training camp begins in September."
Dubinsky, 31, had 41 points (12 goals, 29 assists) and was plus-16 in 80 regular-season games this season, and had two points (one goal, one assist) in five Stanley Cup Playoff games. The Blue Jackets were eliminated in the Eastern Conference First Round by the Pittsburgh Penguins in five games.
Dubinsky has 408 points (141 goals, 267 assists) in 700 NHL games with the Blue Jackets and New York Rangers.
