WASHINGTON -- Flyers’ left wing Simon Gagne has two small hernias in his right groin area and it appears to be a brand, new injury.
A decision on whether to perform surgery will be made Wednesday, after the club’s medical staff consults with Alan Schurict, a surgeon at Pennsylvania Hospital, who performed the ultrasound on Tuesday and others, including Gagne.
“I know it’s very vague, but it’s only because I don’t know any more,” general manager Paul Holmgren said before Tuesday’s game against the Capitals. “We need to sit down and talk to Simon about the whole thing going on here. [Surgery] is an option, yeah. I don’t know right now.”
