The Chicago Blackhawks announced today goaltender Nikolai Khabibulin underwent successful surgery to repair a torn rotator cuff in his right shoulder. The procedure was performed at Northwestern Memorial Hospital under the supervision of Blackhawks Head Team Physician Dr. Michael Terry.

“Nikolai underwent surgery today on his right shoulder,” Terry said. “He had a rotator cuff injury which was becoming increasingly symptomatic that we repaired. The procedure went very well and I anticipate a full recovery. He should be able to return to hockey in four to five months.”

Khabibulin, 40, has appeared in four games with the Blackhawks this season, earning a 1-0-1 record in those contests.
