Nicklas Backstrom may be facing a rehab of five months after having hip surgery, according to a report from a Swedish newspaper.
He underwent arthroscopic surgery less than three weeks ago. "I have been in pain since November sometime so we had to correct it," Backstrom told Gefle Dagblad. "It is difficult to say how long it will take to get back, it's a little different from individual to individual, but five months is something I heard. Right now I'm working mainly with getting up movement in the hip again." The Capitals initially said that Backstrom would probably be ready for training camp. Jun 15 - 2:36 PM
