95.5 Reports Roy OK

Jay Allen broke the news on 95.5 this morning just before a Blazersedge guest spot on Gavin Dawson's morning show:  the surgery is done and the early, informal reports are that everything is fine and they're anticipating Roy being back on a relatively short schedule.  Apparently nothing major beyond the meniscus tear was found.

Official word will be coming later.

Update 1:  The same has been confirmed anonymously and unofficially (but directly to us) from within the organization.  No major difficulties, short recovery time, should be feeling chipper before the season starts.

Update 2: Quick has some more information.

Roy will need 4-to-6 weeks to recover from Thursday's arthroscopic knee surgery according to team athletic trainer Jay Jensen. Roy underwent a 20-minute procedure in Vancouver, Wash., during which team physician Don Roberts removed a piece of cartilage that was causing irritation in Roy's left knee.

"He will definitely be playing by the time the season starts,'' Jensen said.
