RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -Carolina Hurricanes left winger Ray Whitney had surgery on his right shoulder Tuesday and expects to be at full strength when training camp begins in September.
Marty Isbell, a doctor in Cary, N.C., performed the surgery, which will be followed by three months of rehabilitation.
Earlier this month, Whitney signed a three-year, $10.5 million contract. He led the Hurricanes and tied for 21st in the NHL with a career-high 83 points, and matched another personal best with 32 goals.
