On Tuesday, Troy Brouwer had surgery on his right shoulder to repair a tear. The press release from the Blackhawks’ head physician, Dr. Michael Terry, is as follows:
â€œTroy Brouwer underwent surgery on Tuesday to repair a right shoulder labral tear which had been symptomatic intermittently throughout the season. The surgery went very well and we anticipate a full recovery.â€
Though Dr. Terry says that this was a thing that had been nagging Brouwer through last season, I’m sure the missed check that drove his shoulder into the boards during the game against Montreal on April 5 didn’t help matters.
Troy Brouwer will be a restricted free agent on July 1st.
