General manager Jim Nill said on Friday that Hintz had played “an avulsion injury to the left adductor tendon,” which he said was a small piece of bone attached to the adductor that strayed away where the tendon attaches to the pelvis region.
The recovery time is expected to be 3-4 months, so it is expected that he will be ready for training camp in September. Hintz was first injured in the playoffs last summer, and the Stars knew surgery would be needed from an MRI before the season. He still had 43 points (15 goals, 28 assists) in 41 games.
Nill said six times attacking the stars Tyler Seguin and goalkeeper Ben Bishop, who both had surgery after the last offseason, should be ready for the next camp with extended time to be in good health. It is the same Alexandre Radulov, who only played 11 games in mid-March before basic surgery.
Seguin returned to play three games late after hip and knee surgery. Bishop has never played this season after two knee surgeries.
