Ladd (sports hernia) might need offseason surgery.
Ladd played through a sports hernia in the first round loss against the Ducks. He will see a specialist and might opt for surgery. He said the injury limited his explosiveness on skates, but was not a major issue.
Ladd (elbow) is out for the rest of the regular season.
Ladd had a strong season, nearing his career-high with 54 points (23G / 31A). That falls five short of his career-high that he set with the Atlanta Thrashers (remember them?) in 2010-11. Ladd has been a good leader for this team and exemplifies exactly what head coach Paul Maurice is looking for out of his players. Should Maurice be back next season, look for Ladd to have a good year.
Andrew Ladd is looking a little worse for wear after taking an errant puck to the nose on Thursday, but the Winnipeg Jets captain will be in the lineup as they face the Carolina Hurricanes on Saturday night at MTS Centre.
Ladd will play tonight but likely is less than 100 percent. After getting hit with a shot to-the-face, Ladd will wear a visor tonight.
