Dallas Stars center Tyler Seguin underwent surgery to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder and is expected to be ready for training camp in September, general manager Jim Nill said Wednesday.
"It's something that bothered him all season, and he could have waited to do it sometime after next season and tried to play through it," Nill said of Seguin's decision to have surgery, which was performed Tuesday. "But with the time we had, we decided it was best to get it fixed."
Seguin is expected to spend the next two to four weeks in a sling and have another month of rehab before he can resume skating.
Seguin collected 26 goals and 46 assists for a team-leading 72 points while playing in all 82 games this season for the Stars, who finished with a 34-37-11 mark. The 25-year-old has scored 133 goals and set up 173 others in four seasons with Dallas.
A Stanley Cup winner with Boston, Seguin has recorded 189 goals and 238 assists in 508 career games with the Bruins and Stars.
