From the Canucks

Media Release - Ryan Kesler has successful shoulder surgery to repair torn labrum. #Canucks


Vancouver, B.C. - Vancouver Canucks President and General Manager Mike Gillis announced today that centre Ryan Kesler had successful shoulder surgery to repair torn labrum.

“After consultation with our team physicians following the playoffs, it was deemed that Ryan would require a procedure on his shoulder,” said President and General Manager, Mike Gillis. “We expect a full recovery and determined this procedure would best serve both Ryan and the team’s long term goals.”

#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!

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.

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.

Kesler needs to change the way he plays IMO

He can't be the raging bull that plows through traffic and then goes flying into the boards. His career will be severely limited if he keeps doing that.

You are right..........he should correct his aim and fly into opposition players. ::D

So best bet he's back by November. Hopefully Schroeder is NHL-ready. He'll have to be.

All I really want is Kesler not to come back early. Hopefully he learned by last year that coming back early will screw you up for a whole year.,

Chara also suffered a similar injury. After that surgery in the summer he went onto score a career-high in goals the very next season.

Obviously, 'full recovery time' is a lot shorter for pro atheletes with every resource under the sun available to them. Cheers.

No thanks, Lappy is much more suited for the third line.
