Defenseman projected to need 5-6 months to recover @NHLdotcom

Brent Seabrook had surgery on his right hip Thursday, and the defenseman is expected to be ready for training camp with the Chicago Blackhawks next season.

The 34-year-old defenseman had surgery on his left hip in January and a procedure to repair his right shoulder Dec. 27. He is projected to recover in 5-6 months.

Seabrook, who had four points (three goals, one assist) in 32 games this season and has 464 points (103 goals, 361 assists) in 1,114 NHL games, all with the Blackhawks, hasn't played since Dec. 15.

Chicago defenseman Calvin de Haan also had right-shoulder surgery Dec. 27 and is out for the season.

The Blackhawks (25-21-8) trail the Calgary Flames by two points for the second wild card into the Stanley Cup Playoffs from the Western Conference. Their next game is at the Winnipeg Jets on Sunday (7 p.m. ET; ESPN+, SN, TVAS, NBCSCH+, NHL.TV).
