Gaborik may be out 5-6 months w/ torn rotatorJune 1, 2012, by
According to nhl.com, Marian Gaborik had an MRI on Tuesday and learned that he has a torn labrum. He told Slovakian newspaper SME that he will undergo surgery next Wednesday and could be out up to 5-6 months, though that timetable will likely change after surgery.
As we mentioned in our report cards the other day, you can now forgive Gabby for under-performing during the playoffs. You also have to respect the man for taking pain injections and still going out there and competing. Even with a torn rotator he was able to 86 the Caps and put up 11 points in 20 games, far more than some of our healthy players.
Anyway, we will continue to update this story as more information becomes available.
