Blue Jackets' Prout to miss start of training camp @NHLdotcom

The Columbus Blue Jackets announced that defenseman Dalton Prout had surgery to repair a torn abdominal muscle Thursday and will miss the start of training camp in September.

"We discovered this week that there was actually a small tear and that surgery would be his best option," Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen said. "The typical recovery time for an injury like this is six weeks, so our hope is he will be ready by the start of the regular season."

Prout, a 2010 sixth-round pick (No. 154) had seven points and a team-best plus-15 rating in 28 games last season.
