Successful wrist surgery for Chicago's Kane @NHL
The Chicago Blackhawks announced Tuesday that star forward Patrick Kane had successful surgery on his left wrist.

Kane recently told the Chicago Tribune the wrist had been bothering him since the postseason. The original prognosis on the recovery time, expected to be six-to-eight weeks, is the same.

"Patrick Kane underwent surgery today to repair a scaphoid fracture in his left wrist," Blackhawks head team physician Dr. Michael Terry said in a statement released by the team. "The surgery went very well and we anticipate a full recovery. Patrick will begin doing modified preseason workouts shortly and we hope for a full return to activity in six to eight weeks."

Kane had 27 goals and 73 points for the Blackhawks last season. Both totals were the second-highest of his four-year career. He also appeared in the NHL All-Star Game for the second time.
