Tuesday’s NHL: Stars Seguin, Bishop facing 5-month surgery rehabs

Associated Press

Frisco, Texas — Dallas Stars center Tyler Seguin will need about five months of rehabilitation and recovery after surgery to repair the torn labrum in his hip that he played with during the Stanley Cup playoffs.

Goaltender Ben Bishop is facing a similar recovery time following his second knee surgery.

The Stars said Seguin had surgery Monday in New York. Bishop had surgery Oct. 21 in Missouri to repair torn meniscus in his right knee, about five months after a previous procedure.

Dallas Stars center Tyler Seguin, right, will be out five months while recovering from surgery to repair a torn labrum in his hip.

Seguin led the team with 50 points (17 goals, 33 assists) in the regular season. The six-time All-Star had two goals and 11 assists in 26 playoff games, with no goals and six assists the last 15 games.

Bishop didn’t play after a first-round playoff game against Colorado on Aug. 31 because he never fully recovered from a previous knee surgery in May during the season’s 4 1/2-month pause because of the coronavirus pandemic. Bishop has three years left on his $29.5 million, six-year contract.

The Stars last month re-signed goalie Anton Khudobin, who had become a free agent, to new a $10 million, three-year contract.

Pulock, Islanders agree to deal

The Islanders and restricted free agent defenseman Ryan Pulock have agreed to terms on a two-year deal.

The Islanders and the 26-year-old Pulock avoided an arbitration hearing.

Pulock had 10 goals and 25 assists in 68 games last season. The first-round draft pick in 2013, he added two goals and eight assists in 22 playoff games as the Islanders made it to the Eastern Conference final.

Pulock led Islanders defensemen in scoring the past two seasons. He has 31 goals and 77 assists in 234 NHL games.

Before making it to the NHL, he played with Bridgeport (AHL). Internationally, Pulock has represented Canada at the 2018 world championships and at the 2012 world junior championships.
