Boychuk Undergoes Successful Surgery on Wrist

RALEIGH, NC—Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that forward Zach Boychuk underwent successful surgery on his left wrist this afternoon in Raleigh. Dr. George Edwards performed the procedure, which repaired a fracture in Boychuk’s wrist. Dr. Edwards, who operated on Rod Brind’Amour’s hand during the 2002-03 season, estimates the recovery time for the procedure at about three months.

Selected by the Hurricanes in the first round, 14th overall, of the 2008 NHL Entry Draft, Boychuk, 18, led all WHL skaters in 2008 with 13 playoff goals as Lethbridge won three postseason series and the WHL’s Eastern Conference title before falling to the Spokane Chiefs in the WHL finals. Boychuk (5’10”, 180 lbs.) finished the 2007-08 regular season ranked second among Lethbridge skaters with 72 points, tied for second with 33 goals and led the team with a plus-26 plus/minus rating despite playing in just 61 of the Hurricanes’ 72 regular-season games. The Calgary, Alb., native played in all seven of Team Canada’s games en route to its fourth consecutive gold medal at the 2008 International Ice Hockey Federation World Junior Championships. In 2006-07, Boychuk led Lethbridge with 91 points (31g, 60a) in 69 games as a 17-year-old.
