Sakic to Undergo Hernia Surgery

The Avalanche have announced that Joe Sakic will undergo hernia surgery. The surgery will keep him out for at least another 8 weeks and could go as long as 12 weeks.

That means the earliest we'll see him back in an Avalanche jersey will be the very end of February and as late as early April.

It makes me wonder why it took so long to make this decision. The Avalanche medical team recently had issues with hernias not too long ago from the oft-injured Jordan Leopold. He was mis-diagnosed when initially evaluated, he then had the surgery and was brought back too soon following the procedure.

Let's hope they don't make the same mistake with Sakic.
