Anaheim, CA (Sports Network) - Anaheim Ducks center Ryan Getzlaf underwent successful sports hernia surgery on Wednesday.

Getzlaf aggravated the injury during summer workouts and opted for surgery when the problem did not improve over time. The operation was performed by Dr. William Meyers in Philadelphia. Getzlaf is expected to be ready for training camp.

Last season, his fourth in the NHL, Getzlaf appeared in 81 games and led the Ducks with 66 assists and 91 points.
