The Calgary Flames confirmed today that prospect Sam Bennett needs surgery on his shoulder. He’ll have the operation next week.
“A full recovery and return to play is expected in 4-6 months,” the club wrote in a press release.
“Sam has a shoulder injury and has been dealing with this for some time,” Flames GM Brad Treliving said earlier this week. “One of the great characteristics of this young lad and one of the things that draws us to him is his competitiveness and I think he’s probably been dealing with this for longer than he’s wanted to let on.”
