LAS VEGAS -- Penguins center Jordan Staal, who came back to play in the second round of the playoffs six days after surgery to repair a sliced tendon on the top of his right foot, had a second surgery about three weeks ago.
"I just had a minor procedure just to kind of help it move along quicker and heal faster," Staal said during a media availability today at the Palms Casino Resort, site of Wednesday's NHL Awards show. He is a finalist for the Selke Award, which goes to the top defensive forward.
He had his foot in a walking boot and was using crutches.
"I've got about three more weeks with this boot and then some therapy and working out," Staal said.
