The Blackhawks announced yesterday that forward Troy Brouwer had surgery when the season ended.
“Troy 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.”
Brouwer is the second restricted free agent from the 2010-11 roster to go under the knife already this summer; Chris Campoli had knee surgery a couple weeks ago.
Perhaps the most interesting piece of this release is that the shoulder gave Brouwer problems all year.
