Stars standouts Seguin, Bishop facing 5-month surgery rehabs
FRISCO, Texas (AP) — Dallas Stars center Tyler Seguin will need about five months of rehabilitation and recovery after surgery to repair the torn labrum in his hip that he played with during the Stanley Cup playoffs.
Goaltender Ben Bishop is facing a similar recovery time following his second knee surgery.
The Stars said Seguin had surgery Monday in New York. Bishop had surgery Oct. 21 in Missouri to repair torn meniscus in his right knee, about five months after a previous procedure.
Seguin led the team with 50 points (17 goals, 33 assists) in the regular season. The six-time All-Star had two goals and 11 assists in 26 playoff games, with no goals and six assists the last 15 games.
Bishop didn’t play after a first-round playoff game against Colorado on Aug. 31 because he never fully recovered from a previous knee surgery in May during the season's 4 1/2-month pause because of the coronavirus pandemic. Bishop has three years left on his $29.5 million, six-year contract.
The Stars last month re-signed goalie Anton Khudobin, who had become a free agent, to new a $10 million, three-year contract.
