Alex Burrows has shoulder surgery

Burrows.jpgSome small news out of Vancouver this evening after the Canucks
released a statment that leading-scorer Alex Burrows had undergone
successful shoulder surgery, “for damage suffered during the course of
the season.”

“At the conclusion of our season and after further consultation with our
medical staff it was determined that shoulder surgery was the required
procedure for Alex,” Gillis said in a release.

Not much to add,
other than Burrows is expected to be ready to go in time for training
camp.

I’m guessing Burrows isn’t an avid ping pong player, as we
never got wind of any disputes over whether the injury was hockey
related or not.

    Apparently there has been an update to his situation given by his agent saying not only is he unlikely to participate in training camp, he could miss the start of the season as well.
