Some small news out of Vancouver this evening after the Canucks released a statment that leading-scorer Alex Burrows had undergone successful shoulder surgery, “for damage suffered during the course of the season.”

“At the conclusion of our season and after further consultation with our medical staff it was determined that shoulder surgery was the required procedure for Alex,” Gillis said in a release.

Not much to add, other than Burrows is expected to be ready to go in time for training camp.

I’m guessing Burrows isn’t an avid ping pong player, as we never got wind of any disputes over whether the injury was hockey related or not.
