PITTSBURGH - Pittsburgh Penguins forward Maxime Talbot underwent surgery to repair the torn labrum in his left shoulder Tuesday, and his recovery is expected to take four to five months.

The 25-year-old, who scored both goals in Pittsburgh's 2-1 victory over Detroit in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup final, had played through the injury "for quite a while" according to GM Ray Shero.

"We all agreed it was best for him to have the surgery at this time," Shero said in a release. "Although he will miss training camp and the start of the season, the doctors expect him to make a complete recovery."

Talbot has appeared in 261 career games in the NHL, collecting 42 goals and 80 points.
