Off-Season Injury Notes (May 30)

The Ottawa Senators announced on Tuesday that Derick Brassard has been booked in to undergo surgery to repair a torn labrum in his shoulder, which should happen right away, and the expected recovery time for him is in the neighbourhood of 4-to-5 months.  Under this timeline, it seems like Brassard is now expected to miss the bulk of training camp and could miss anywhere between the start of the regular season to a month in.

Brassard was a solid contributor for the Senators last season, scoring 14 goals and 39 points in 81 games, good enough for 146th among all forwards.  Hopefully a quick return will make sure that he's still pool worthy for the entire season.
