The Vancouver Canucks say defenceman Alexander Edler underwent successful back surgery Monday, but that they will know more about his prognosis in the next few days.
The Canucks were told that Edler would require 10-12 weeks to recover post-surgery, a timeline that bumps up against the end of the NHLís regular season on April 10. Edler was suffering from a herniated disc in his lower back, which was not going to heal without surgery.
