The bumps and bruises of the playoffs take a long time to recover from. For one Blue Jacket, it looks like surgery was needed to help with recovery.

Brandon Dubinsky underwent a successful wrist surgery after dealing with a nagging injury over the past month according to the club. 

General manager Jarmo Kekalainen in a Blue Jackets' press release gave the timeline for both the injury and recovery.

"Brandon had been experiencing discomfort in his wrist since the season ended and after an examination last week it was determined that surgery was the best course of action at this time," said Kekalainen. "We expect that he'll be ready to go when training camp begins in September."

Dubinsky played in 80 games this past season. He scored 12 goals and put up 29 assists for a total of 41 points. Neither were career-highs for the former Portland Winterhawk. He did however tie a career-high for plus-minus at 16.
