Sports hernia symptoms include groin pain along the low abdomen where the abdominal muscles connect with the pelvis and leg.
Unlike a true hernia, there is no bulging. A sports hernia is a tear or weakness in these muscles.
And it seems as though MDZ did have this done.
New York Rangers President and General Manager Glen Sather announced today that Michael Del Zotto underwent successful surgery to repair a sports hernia this morning.
The procedure was performed by Dr. William Meyers at the Riverview Surgical Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He is expected to be ready for the start of training camp.
