Simon Gagne underwent surgery to remove “mass” from his neck

RDS’ Renaud Lavoie reports that Los Angeles Kings winger Simon Gagne underwent neck surgery to remove a five-centimeter “mass” about three weeks ago. The good news is that Lavoie also reports that Gagne is “already 100 percent” and training for next season.
5 cm is almost 2 inches. That's pretty damn big to be in someone's neck. Maybe this contributed to some of those concussion symptoms he had in the past.

Didn't he have something "experimental", or was that only Carter?

Sure did. Neck and shoulder area which was a result of a hit by Jay Bouwmeester. He underwent... this article explains it...

After a near-miraculous recovery by way of prolotherapy, Flyers left-winger (and South Jersey resident) Simon Gagne prepares to take to the ice again.

The pain at times was unbearable, the inactivity just as difficult to cope with. Simon Gagne, a two-time all-star left winger with the Flyers, was relegated to sitting on his couch, hoping the incessant pain would somehow cease, wondering when or if he would ever lace up his skates again.

And then his fortunes took an upward turn after doing nothing more than watching television.

There, Gagne saw a local news report on doctor Scott Greenberg from the Magaziner Center For Wellness and Anti-Aging in Cherry Hill. Dr. Greenberg is one of, if not the, country’s leading expert in prolotherapy, which has been described as nonsurgical ligament reconstruction and a treatment for chronic pain. The orthopedic procedure stimulates the body’s natural healing processes to strengthen joints.

Due to concussion symptoms, Gagne played in just 25 games last season for the Flyers. The 28-year-old suffered a concussion last October in a 4-3 road loss to the Florida Panthers. He missed four games, returned for two and then was out 26 more games with concussion and neck discomfort before returning January 10 in a 6-2 win at New York against the Rangers. Gagne last played on February 10 in a 4-3 loss at Pittsburgh when he suffered another concussion. It would be his last hockey appearance of the season. After that, Gagne was reduced to spectator.

I would love to see him come back and play a full healthy season, but I don't know if that is possible. He is a great player and seeing him get the Cup was a site to see. If he gets injured again he should truly think about retiring.
