Beleskey has surgery; out five months (pictures).

The Ducks said that forward Matt Beleskey underwent successful surgery today on his left shoulder at the Kerlan-Jobe Surgery Center in Los Angeles. The surgery was to repair a torn labrum and was performed by Ducks Orthopedic Surgeon Dr. Orr Limpisvasti.

Beleskey is expected to be fully recovered in five months, approximately the same situation as defenseman Toni Lydman.

Thanks to the magic of Twitter, we have before-and-after pictures of Beleskey in surgery, courtesy of his Twitter feed:
