One of the Winnipeg Jet cornerstone pieces – defenceman Zach Bogosian – is going under the knife this week for wrist surgery.
The Jets announced today the 22-year-old American will have surgery on his right wrist on Friday and issued a statement from the club’s head physician, Dr. Peter MacDonald:
"Winnipeg Jets defenceman, Zach Bogosian, has been diagnosed with a chronic ligament tear in his right wrist. During off-season training, Zach experienced discomfort and was limited in his performance. Zach will thus undergo surgery this upcoming Friday performed by Dr. Thomas Graham at the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio."
Dr. Graham has assisted the Jets’ medical and training staff with other players as well as performing surgery on numerous players in the NHL, NBA, and Major League Baseball.
The Jets did not provide a timetable as to how long Bogosian, who is coming off his best season as a pro with five goals and 25 assists in 65 games, might need to recover but he could be lost for a significant amount of time. The prognosis is the surgery could keep him out for a minimum of three months, likely longer. The Jets are expected to provide an update after Bogosian’s surgery on Friday.
