by @NHL /

New Jersey Devils defenseman Jon Merrill had surgery performed on his right shoulder Monday and will need four months to recover, Devils general manager Ray Shero said Wednesday.

Merrill had one goal and five points in 47 games this season, his third with New Jersey.

Four months would take Merrill into late September, about the time training camp would begin. He was not expected to participate in the World Cup of Hockey, which begins Sept. 17.
