Clouston also gave a couple of injury updates. 

Pascal Leclaire had surgery on his right hip last week in Colorado.  It was to repair a tear and an issue with his hip bone.  It is a common procedure, one that both Niklas Backstrom & Craig Anderson have had.  It will take 3-4 months to recover.  Nevertheless, Leclaire feels that despite his injury woes, he will find a place to play in the NHL next season.
