There was a summertime article from a newspaper in Quebec (summarized here) related to it:

(Quebec) While his teammates were still celebrating the Stanley Cup they won the week before, the Los Angeles Kings forward, Simon Gagne, was on a surgery table. The June 18th, he underwent a surgery to remove a mass in his neck the size of a tennis ball. For the #12 the procedure could be the answer to the pain he felt in the last few seasons.

For three years, Simon Gagne was living with this mass in his neck. Neither Flyers nor Lighning doctors dared to touch it. Ironically, it was another injury he suffered on December 26th, that forced the best Los Angeles specialists to look further.

“Because I was already injured, they [the LA doctors] decided to not take any chances and treated my injury like it was a concussion and they made tests. After 5 months, they realized that a surgery was possible, with a chance of a full recovery, with no subsequent issues. It’s been already 3 weeks and I’m feeling really good. I’m very happy I did it. After all, we have the Stanley Cup. So it’s #1!” Happily said the left winger, who was enjoying his day with the precious trophy.
