Patrick Kane has wrist surgery

SHARE Patrick Kane has wrist surgery

As scheduled, Patrick Kane underwent surgery Tuesday to a repair a scaphoid fracture in his left wrist — an injury that overshadowed the opening of the Blackhawks Convention.

“The surgery went very well and we anticipate a full recovery,” head team physician Michael Terry said. “Patrick will begin doing modified preseason workouts shortly and we hope for a full return to activity in six to eight weeks.”

Kane, who suffered the injury in the playoffs, said at the convention that he’s already altered how he does cleans to limit pain in his wrist.

“When you did cleans, it probably hurt a little more,” Kane said. “But with talking to [strength coach Paul Goodman], we transformed that exercise to where it wouldn’t hurt and I was still able to get the same amount of leverage off the workout. But anything I did that hurt I pretty much stopped. But I’m sure even doing it in first place put a little more pressure on it and didn’t help.”
