The season effectively is over for John Moore.
The Boston Bruins defenseman elected to have a hip arthroscopy and labral repair, which comes with a recovery time of 5-6 months, the team announced. With the postseason set to end by mid-July, Moore’s season is over.
Moore underwent the procedure, which Dr. Bryan Kelly performed, on Monday at The Hospital for Special Surgery in New York.
It has been a tough season for Moore, who has dealt with a few minor injuries throughout the campaign and been healthy scratched for stretches, as well. The 30-year-old left-shot blueliner will finish his campaign having played five games, posting two assists.
