Rod Brind'Amour Has Minor Knee Surgery

The Carolina Hurricanes just released information that Captain, Rod Brind'Amour underwent knee surgery earlier today at Rex Hospital here in Raleigh. The outpatient surgery was successful and Brind'Amour is expected to be able to play on opening night, October 10th. The following is from the press release.

The procedure was performed by Dr. Marty Isbell, removing torn cartilage (meniscus) from Brind’Amour’s left knee. Brind’Amour is expected to be back in action prior to the opening of the regular season.

Apparently, Brind'Amour had been having trouble with the knee but tweaked it further during the 5K "Fun Run" on Sunday. He was seen limping away from the festivities by several concerned fans.

More information later as it becomes available....
