Edmonton Oilers assistant captain Shawn Horcoff
will undergo surgery on his left shoulder later this week and will be lost to the team for the balance of the regular season.
Horcoff has been hampered with the injury this season and re-injured the shoulder at the 2008 NHL All-Star Game in Atlanta on January 27th. He played in the Oilers first game following the All-Star break, but missed Edmonton’s last game versus the Dallas Stars on February 1st.
Horcoff currently leads the Oilers in scoring and is tied for 26th in the NHL scoring race with 21-29-50 in 53 games. Related Multimedia (from today):
