Ference has surgery

Bruins defenseman Andrew Ference, sidelined with multple injuries at the end of the playoffs, today underwent surgery at MGH for the repair of an abdominal hernia and he also had an adductor release, the latter to address his injured groin.

The surgery was performed by Dr. David Berger and Dr. Peter Asnis at Mass General
Hospital.

According to a release issued by the club, the 30-year-old Ference will miss approximately four to six weeks.

We are seeking a clairification on this point to determine if that means Ference must abstain from training for 4-6 weeks, or whether he will have to miss the first 4-6 weeks of the season–what could be upwards of 15-18 games out of the lineup.
