Canucks' Santorelli undergoes season-ending surgery

The SportsXchange

Vancouver Canucks center Mike Santorelli had shoulder surgery and will miss five to six months, the team announced Thursday.

Santorelli had worked his way onto the Canucks' top line with Daniel Sedin and Henrik Sedin after joining the team on a tryout deal during the summer. The surgery will sideline Santorelli for the remainder of the season.

In 49 games with Vancouver, Santorelli had 10 goals and 18 assists for 28 points, which is fifth highest on the team despite already missing six games. He leads the team in shootout goals with two, accounting for half of the Canucks' total this season.

The 27-year-old played in only 10 games and had one assist last season for the Winnipeg Jets. He previously was with the Nashville Predators and the Florida Panthers. Santorelli has 43 career goals and 44 assists in 257 games.
