Mikko Koivu will undergo two surgeries in the next couple of days in Finland (he
flew home Thursday). He will have arthroscopic surgery on his right shoulder to
repair a torn labrum. Rehabilitation time for this is approximately 14-16 weeks.
He will also have arthroscopic surgery on his right knee. Rehabilitation time
for the knee surgery is approximately 3-4 weeks.
He is having the surgery in Finland to help his recovery and rehabilitation process (he's single, so this way his family will help him get to and from rehab) instead of being here in the Twin Cities and trying to fly family here to help him this summer.
Cam Barker underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right ankle April 20 to remove loose particles. Rehabilitation time is approximately 3-4 weeks.
