Pahlsson to Miss 3-5 Weeks with Injury

Ducks forward Samuel Pahlsson will miss 3 to 5 weeks with a sports hernia, Anaheim Executive Vice President/General Manager Brian Burke told media Thursday.

The 29-year-old Pahlsson, entering his seventh season with the Ducks, underwent surgery on Sept. 5 in Philadelphia. Performing the procedure was Dr. Bill Meyer, who performed the same surgery on Ducks goalie J.S. Giguere in early August.

"The recovery time is 3 to 5 weeks and, as was the case with Jiggy, the question is going to be why on earth was this done in September?" Burke said. "Sammy went through abdominal pain throughout the playoffs, but the recommendation was rest. Once he did hard workouts, the pain was off and on, but he didn’t have steady pain."

Burke said that despite the fact doctors felt Pahlsson's injury from the playoffs had healed, he was still having "inconsistent recovery time and pain," so the Ducks flew him back to the U.S. from Sweden. He was examined by a Ducks team doctor and referred to Dr. Meyer.

"Dr. Meyer felt the surgery was successful," Burke said. "We anticipate if he misses any regular season time, it will not be a lot."

Pahlsson had eight goals and 18 assists during the 2006-07 season and 12 points during the postseason in helping the Ducks to the Stanley Cup title.

Burke did not comment on the recovery of Giguere from a similar surgery.
