Report: Simon Gagne May Need Hernia Surgery

gagsVOORHEES, N.J.- According to Bucks County Flyers beat writer Wayne Fish, the Flyers are contemplating putting left-winger Simon Gagne on injured-reserve, due to the fact that he might need hernia surgery.

The newspaper received this news late Monday night from an NHL source.

Gagne, 29, didn’t practice Monday after only playing one shift in the third period of Sunday’s loss to the San Jose Sharks. Gagne underwent an ultrasound Monday afternoon.

As expected, Flyers GM Paul Holmgren denied the source’s findings.

“The exact path (of action) will not be decided until tomorrow (today),” Holmgren insisted. “Anything else reported would be wrong.” Holmgren also gave no updates on the results of the ultrasound, because there is none.

The problems Gagne is having so far this season in terms of production, could relate to the physical issues he’s experiencing now.

Gagne has netted one goal and four assists through nine games.

I will try to update this when news becomes available. If not right away, I will definitely have something up here by mid afternoon.
