FRISCO (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — After injuries and surgery, long recovery and rehabilitation times are ahead for two of the Dallas Stars best players.
It’s predicted that center Tyler Seguin will need about five months of rehab and recovery for a torn labrum in his hip that he played with during the Stanley Cup playoffs.READ MORE: 1 Injured, At Least 24 Units Destroyed After Fire At Fort Worth Apartment Complex
Goaltender Ben Bishop is facing a similar recovery time following his second knee surgery.
The Stars said Seguin had surgery Monday in New York. Bishop had surgery Oct. 21 in Missouri to repair torn meniscus in his right knee, about five months after a previous procedure.
Seguin led the team with 50 points (17 goals, 33 assists) in the regular season. The six-time All-Star had two goals and 11 assists in 26 playoff games, with no goals and six assists the last 15 games.READ MORE: 'This Is Beyond Bullying': Justice Sought For Plano ISD Boy Allegedly Abused By Haggard Middle School Students
Bishop didn’t play after a first-round playoff game against Colorado on Aug. 31 because he never fully recovered from a previous knee surgery in May during the season’s 4 1/2-month pause because of the coronavirus pandemic. Bishop has three years left on his $29.5 million, six-year contract.
The Stars last month re-signed goalie Anton Khudobin, who had become a free agent, to new a $10 million, three-year contract.
