We were already told that Blair Betts would have surgery again on his dislocated right shoulder this summer and Johan Backlund would undergo a minor hip procedure as well.

But, Paul Holmgren hinted that more surgeries could be on the way pending doctor visits over the weekend.

Turns out there are at least two.

Dan Carcillo will undergo surgery to repair a sports hernia that he suffered during the playoffs.

Ville Leino will also go under the knife to have his hip cleaned out. Leino's is a minor procedure that won't cost him much time this summer.

Carcillo's is a little longer, but it's not a serious injury and he will be ready for training camp.

Stay tuned as even more could be coming down the road.
