Hurricanes Injury Update: Eric Staal undergoes surgery for core muscle


By on 8/14/2014 04:30:00 PM

According to Jason Brough of NBC Sports, Carolina Hurricanes center Eric Staal underwent surgical repair to a core muscle on July 29. It remains unknown how the injury was sustained, and the only detail available regarding when it occurred is that the injury happened during the off-season. Staal hopes to recover in time for training camp and the start of the upcoming season.


Staal, 29, underwent the surgery in Philadelphia, according to Carolina GM Ron Francis. The surgeon expects Staal to be able to participate in training camp next month without complication. However, if he is unable to make it to training camp, he will definitely be able to play at the start of the season.

The Carolina captain played 79 games and scored 21 goals and had 40 assists, a step up from the previous season where he only played 48 games. Staal looks to improve upon his skills and get more points this season with his injuries repaired.
