Dallas Stars center Tyler Seguin had surgery on Tuesday to repair a torn labrum in his shoulder.
“He should be ready for training camp,” Stars general manager Jim Nill said. “It’s something that bothered him all season. And he could have waited to do it sometime after next season and tried to play through it. But with the time we had, we decided it was best to get it fixed.”
Nill said it’ll be a four-month recovery for Seguin. He’ll spend the next two to four weeks in a sling and then will have another month of rehab before he can resume skating.
Nill said the Stars haven’t been able to pinpoint when the injury occurred and that’s it’s something that got worse as the season progressed.
“That we don’t know, he can’t say when it happened, there wasn’t a hit or anything like that he can point to and say that was what caused it,” Nill said. “He never got better and it ended up being a tear in the shoulder.”
Seguin played all 82 games this season for Dallas and led the team with 26 goals and 46 assists.
