Daze to have surgery to repair herniated disc
- KESWICK -- Canadian Hitmen forward Eric Daze will undergo back
surgery to repair a herniated disc and will be sidelined about 10
Daze, who appeared in only three games before the back injury,
underwent surgery twice to repair herniated discs during his career.
Steve Kempster, the team's GM, said Tuesday the surgery is not
related to previous problems.
"We are optimistic that he will have a full recovery because he's
been working so hard and his back is extremely strong," Kempster said
in a statement.
The Hitmen have been hit with numerous injuries this season, but
still hold on to first place in the FHL Standings.
