Boston Bruins defenseman Andrew Ference will undergo hernia surgery June 17.
The blueliner was initially injured April 4 vs. the New York Rangers but returned to action for Game 1 of the second-round playoff series with the Carolina Hurricanes. Ference, however, was re-injured during Game 3 in Raleigh and did not return to active duty.
Ference finished the regular season with 1-15-16 totals and a plus-7 rating in 47 regular-season games. He did not register a point in three playoff appearances.
