Add two more Penguins to the list of players who will spend the off-season getting over the effects of surgery.
Defenseman Olli Maatta is expected to have a recovery period of 4-6 months after undergoing a shoulder operation today, while winger Beau Bennett is expected to need about four months to recover from wrist surgery.
Maatta’s prognosis is the same offered for fellow defenseman Derrick Pouliot, who underwent shoulder surgery Wednesday.
Maatta's procedure was a shoulder labral repair, and was performed by Dr. Mark Rodosky at UPMC.
Dr. Thomas Graham did the operation on Bennett at the Cleveland Clinic.
