New York Rangers right wing Marian Gaborik will have off-season surgery to repair a torn labrum in his shoulder, the team's website reported today. The surgery will take place on June 6 and will be performed in New York by Dr. Andrew Feldman and Dr. Anothony Maddalo. He is unlikely to be ready for the start of the 2012-13 season.
The Slovakian newspaper SME first reported that Gaborik needed shoulder surgery, and NHL.com said Gaborik reportedly had an MRI on Tuesday that revealed the damage. "MRI showed that I had a torn rotator cuff," Gaborik told reporters in his hometown of Trencin, Slovakia.
