Max Talbot's shoulder surgery a success

Pittsburgh Penguins forward Maxime Talbot underwent successful surgery Tuesday to repair a chronic shoulder problem. His recovery is expected to take four to five months.

UPMC physician Dr. Mark Rodosky performed the surgery to repair a torn labrum in Talbot's left shoulder.

"Max has played with this problem for quite a while and we all agreed it was best for him to have the surgery at this time," Penguins general manager Ray Shero said. "Although he will miss training camp and the start of the season, the doctors expect him to make a complete recovery."

Penguins Press Release
News of the surgery first reported here.

No specific game was cited as the root of this injury and frankly even when thinking back it's hard to pinpoint where Max actually managed to injure himself.  Either way, news of a full recovery is the best news to come of this, even if he has to miss a month of the season.
