The Rangers just announced that Michal Rozsival will undergo surgery today in Vail, Colorado to repair a labral tear in his left hip. The defenseman is expected to make a full recovery in four to six weeks.
No word yet on when exactly the injury was sustained, although Rozsival had been banged up at different times this season.
Of course, the larger question is whether Rozsival will still be a Ranger by the time he’s back 100 percent; or whether this injury will have any impact on the team’s decision to re-sign him. Given that he’s expected to make a fully recovery, I would doubt it.
