Carolina Hurricanes centre Eric Staal underwent surgery to repair a core muscle injury suffered during off-season training.

"Eric notified us of the injury late last week, and flew to Raleigh and then Philadelphia to be evaluated," said Hurricanes general manager Ron Francis.

The team added that Staal is expected to return in time for training camp and be ready for the start of the regular season.

Staal, 29, is entering his 11th NHL season with Carolina after leading the team in assists (40) and points (61) during the 2013-14 campaign.
