Pittsburgh Penguins forward Mike Comrie underwent successful hip surgery this week and will be sidelined for up to 3-to-4 months, the Penguins announced this morning.
The surgery was performed in Vail, Colorado by Dr. Mark Philopon.
Comrie had a disapointing short-run with the Penguins, recording 0 goals – 5 assists and a minus-4 rating in 16 games played. He last played in Buffalo on November 24th.
Penguins head coach Dan Bylsma said last week that Comrie was first injured during the second game of the season against the Montreal Canadiens on Oct. 9.
