#canucks announce Kesler has shoulder (labrum) surgery. Full recovery expected in SIX months. Guessing he wont push to come back early again

So sounds like he'll miss the start of next season again :(

Hopefully this means he'll be back to 100% health when he returns. A healthy Kes = a productive Kes and a productive Kes = a happy fanbase :)

Happy healing!

Yowsa. Poor Kes, 3rd summer in a row recovering from injury. He must have been in a lot of pain, warrior playing through it.

And he didnt make excuses...what a warrior.

Too bad he won't be able to train this off-season though. Next year could be similar to this past year for Kesler because of this.

All the best in your recovery Kes!

This is horrible news. Now he's going to miss another full summer of training, and have another write off season next year...

Lets hope they keep him out a couple months after he's healed so that he can get back into form.

Lets hope Schroeder is ready, otherwise we might need to look for a second line centre.

Ugh. Dude!

At least he can skate during the summer. But, so much for practicing his shot.

This is also why you keep depth at centre in your organization.

After Schroeder, we have no one in the organization that can fill in on the second line.

damn, this means another offseason of rehab instead of training. He repeatedly credited his Selke + 40-goal season to his offseason, I remember hearing every game about his "100 shots a day" making his wrist shot lethal. I was really thinking he could get close to that this year but I don't see it now. If he doesn't rush himself hopefully he'll have his legs and can get back into Selke talk but I personally don't think he'll be scoring over 25 (looks like he'll miss at least the first month).

That sucks, he needed to learn a new move thi offseason. Everyone figured out his toe drag shoot from the top of the circle move.
