Devils Winger Has Surgery

New Jersey Devils forward Ondrej Palat underwent groin surgery and will be out indefinitely. An update on his expected recovery timeline will be provided by doctors once determined.

This is rough news for a Devils team that is off to a mighty start. At the time of this writing, they have a 6-3-0 record and are aiming to maintain this play from here. Yet, being without their biggest offseason addition in Palat for a while will certainly make that far more challenging. They will be hoping that Palat can return soon, but there's no timeline on that front.

In six games this season for the Devils, Palat has three goals to go along with a minus-1 rating. Overall, it has been a decent start for him in Jersey, so here's to hoping that he can have the chance to build on that in the near future.
