Pittsburgh Penguins forward Dominik Simon will be out at least six to seven months after undergoing surgery to repair a torn labrum in his left shoulder, the team announced on Thursday.
Simon initially hurt the shoulder in a loss to the San Jose Sharks on Feb. 29 and underwent surgery on April 29. The surgery would preclude Simon from returning if the 2019-2020 NHL season resumes. The league is currently on “pause” due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The 25-year-old Simon had seven goals and 15 assists in 64 games this season for Pittsburgh.
