Staal Undergoes Minor Surgery

This one went under the radar (MY radar, anyway ... and I need to pay attention to the Pittsburgh newspapers more seeing how I almost missed two interesting tidbits this week ... Cooke resigning and now this!)!!

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette is reporting that Jordan Staal underwent a second surgery about three weeks ago to his tendon on the top of his right foot (pictured to the right at the 2010 NHL Awards festivies).
"I just had a minor procedure just to kind of help it move along quicker and heal faster," Staal said during a media availability today at the Palms Casino Resort, site of Wednesday's NHL Awards show. He is a finalist for the Selke Award, which goes to the top defensive forward.

"I've got about three more weeks with this boot and then some therapy and working out," Staal said.
