Philadelphia Flyers goaltender Antero Niittymaki and left wing Simon Gagne both had successful surgery on Monday.

Gagne had a procedure done in Montreal by Dr. Rea Brown and Dr. David Mulder to have a small hernia on his right side and a larger hernia on his left side repaired. He is expected to be fully healed within eight weeks.

Niittymaki had a procedure done on his left hip last Friday in Nashville performed by Dr. Thomas Byrd at Baptist Hospital. He is expected to be fully recovered within 10 weeks.
