Orpik Undergoes Surgery Today

The Penguins webpage reported earlier that Brooks Orpik underwent a successful surgery today in Boston to repair a sports hernia that he suffered from for nearly half the season.

His rehabilitation is expected to last about 4-6 weeks and should be ready to go for the start of the season.

According to Sports Illustrated, a sports hernia is "a weakening of the muscles or tendon in the lower abdomen."
