Lydman undergoes surgery; out 5 months.

The Ducks announced that defenseman Toni Lydman underwent successful surgery on his right shoulder Monday at the Kerlan-Jobe Surgery Center in Los Angeles. The surgery was to correct a torn labrum and was performed by Ducks Orthopedic Surgeon Dr. Orr Limpisvasti.

Lydman is expected to be fully recovered in approximately five months.

“We are certainly pleased that Toni’s injury has been corrected and look forward to him returning to full strength in about five months,” Ducks general manager Bob Murray said in a statement. “We also commend Toni for playing through the injury, something he was dealing with since February.”
