Jets center Slater has hip surgery

WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) Winnipeg Jets center Jim Slater has undergone hip surgery and is expected back for training camp in September.

General manager Kevin Cheveldayoff issued a statement Friday about the operation to fix a problem diagnosed after the season ended. Cheveldayoff said: ''Jim Slater underwent successful hip labrum surgery.''

The surgery was performed by Dr. Bryan Kelly at the Hip Preservation Center in New York.

Slater has had a difficult couple of seasons with the Jets. Injuries limited his playing time to 26 games in 2012-13 and 27 last season, when he was sidelined by a hernia.
