Ben Bishop to undergo surgery on wrist; 3 to 4 month rehab projected

New, comments

Coming out of exit interviews today was news about Ben Bishop's injuries. He suffered a torn ligament in his wrist in January and a dislocated elbow on April 8. While the elbow was healing and Bishop was looking towards playing in Game 6 if there was one, that was not to be. (Sorry.)

However we did learn more details about the nagging wrist injury we all knew was bothering him throughout the second half of the season.

If they perform the surgery next week as proposed, a four month recovery would have him fully healed by the end of August. Bishop will, of course, be able to do other conditioning work in the meantime, but this timetable is something to keep an eye on when as the offseason progresses.
