RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -Carolina Hurricanes captain Rod Brind'Amour underwent surgery to remove torn cartilage from his left knee Tuesday.

It is the same knee that required reconstructive surgery in February after he tore his anterior cruciate ligament, an injury that sidelined him for the rest of the season. However, Brind'Amour is expected to be ready for the start of the regular season.

Brind'Amour led the Hurricanes to the 2006 Stanley Cup, and had 51 points while contributing on the power play and penalty kill last season.
