Ryan Whitney out 3-5 months with injury


From Rob Rossi at the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review:

Whitney, whose point total dropped from 59 in 2006-07 to 40 last season, underwent surgery to correct a left-foot misalignment Friday in Charlotte. Full recovery from the osteotomy, usually takes three to five months, which means he won't be back before the end of November.

“Ryan has been bothered by this condition in his foot for some time,” Shero said. “He consulted with a number of specialists in an effort to correct the problem without surgery, but it was ultimately determined that surgery was the best path to take – for his general well-being, and for his career.

Look for Kris Letang to get more ice time, especially on the PP and for rookie Alex Goligoski to start the season with the Penguins.

Anyone know if this is anything like Forsbergs foot issues?

SensChirp i would presume its not as bad just because I think its easier for the younger kids to heal it up. So I would say NO.
