While the Rangers made headlines landing Rick Nash this summer, their other big scorer is feeling good after surgery.

Marian Gaborik spoke with Jim Cerny of Blueshirts United about how he’s doing following an operation on his shoulder this summer and the outlook is positive.

“I feel good,” said Gaborik, who will continue his rehab back home in Slovakia at the end of this week-long stay in New York. “I have been working hard in terms of rehab. Things are going as they should be, so I am happy with the progress.”

On the upside for the Rangers, Gaborik is experienced at recovering from injuries at this point in his career. Wild fans will tell you (at length) about their frustrations with his ability to get hurt at inconvenient times.

In this case, Gaborik played through injury in their Eastern Conference finals loss to the Devils. It’s believed he’ll be out until December recovering from surgery, so until then it’s all on Nash to keep the Rangers’ offense going.
