Tanguay, Pacioretty, Sergei Kostisyn have surgery for injuries @NHLdotcom

MONTREAL - Montreal Canadiens forwards Alex Tanguay and Max Pacioretty have had surgery since their season ended and winger Sergei Kostisyn in scheduled for a procedure this week.

Tanguay, who can become an unrestricted free agent on July 1, had arthroscopic surgery on Tuesday for a lingering shoulder problem, the team said Thursday.

It was not the shoulder that caused him to miss the final two games of Montreal's first-round playoff series against Boston. Doctors told him that one would heal on its own.

Pacioretty had an abdominal wall muscle repaired on Wednesday. He missed the Hamilton Bulldogs' first round AHL playoff series with the injury.

Kostisyn is to undergo arthroscopic surgery on a shoulder on Friday.

All three are expected to be fully healed for the start of training camp in September.
