The Boston Bruins and general manager Don Sweeney announced that two players have underwent successful surgeries this week.
Both Patrice Bergeron and Tuukka Rask went under the knife this past week after toughing it out and being banged up pretty much all season long.
Bergeron had a sports hernia procedure done on Monday. The B's forward was still able to play in 79 games this season, registering 53 points and earning himself another Frank J. Selke nomination.
Rask underwent right groin surgery on Tuesday. Rask did miss small chunks of the season while battling the injury all year. The Bruins mostly struggled without him in between the pipes and despite the injury, Rask still appeared in 65 games registering a 37-20-5 record along with a .915 save percentage.
Both players are expected to make full recoveries and expected to be ready for the start of next season.
