Montreal Canadiens forward Maxim Lapierre and defenceman Mathieu Schneider underwent successful surgery, and both players are expected to recover in time for the start of training camp in September.
Lapierre underwent a minor surgical procedure to his ankle after the 24-year old played most of the season in pain. Lapierre and the Canadiens' medical staff had agreed that surgery would be performed at the end of the season.
Schneider underwent arthroscopic shoulder surgery last week. The 39-year old injured his shoulder in a game against the Maple Leafs in April and missed two games before returning for the last two regular season games of the season. He played in the first two playoff match-ups against the Boston Bruins, but was unable to participate in the following two contests.
