Ryan Kesler underwent surgery Tuesday to repair a labrum in his hip and will likely miss the entire month of October, FOX Sports reports.
Kesler also underwent surgery for a hip labrum in January 2007.
Kesler injured the hip against the San Jose Sharks in the Western Conference Final and was clearly a different player after that. Through 18 games in the playoffs, he had 18 points. He had just one assist in the Stanley Cup Final against Boston.
