Kesler underwent right hip resurfacing surgery on Thursday.

Hip resurfacing is a bone-preserving hip replacement that can provide pain relief and increase function in normal activities of daily living. The surgery does leave open the possibility that Kesler could resume his NHL career following a lengthy recovery. "As we all know, Ryan has been fiercely battling his condition for quite some time," said Executive Vice President/General Manager Bob Murray. "I've been extremely impressed by his determination to play despite being significantly injured. At this point, Ryan needs to think about his life and family. The pain he felt was significant and we agree with his decision to have this surgery. While it's unlikely he will play in 2019-20, we will support any decision he makes about his future playing career.”

Dermott will undergo shoulder surgery and is expected to miss at least six months.

Dermott will undergo shoulder surgery on Friday and will miss the start of the 2019-20 season. Based on the original timetable, Dermott is not expected to be back until early-November, so look for him to miss at least one month, which will allow the Maple Leafs to get a look at a few of their young defensemen.

Ferland has been sidelined by an upper-body injury since Game 3 of round one vs. the Capitals but is expected to play in Boston on Thursday. Ferland told reporters he is feeling fine physically after Monday’s practice and will likely be eased back into playoff action on the fourth line with Greg McKegg and Jordan Martinook.

Mrazek (lower-body) is expected to be available for Game 1 in Boston.

Mrazek was back on the ice on Monday and told reporters that he was feeling fine physically and could be the Game 1 starter in Boston. Head coach Rod Brind’Amour has yet to announce his starting goalie and we may have to wait until pre-game warmups to find out who it is.

Pavelski (upper-body) skated on Monday but will not play in Game 6.

Pavelski, who has been out since Game 7 vs. the Golden Knights, joined his teammates for Monday’s gameday skate but will not be in the lineup for Game 6. Pavelski appears close to returning to the Sharks lineup and will almost certainly be back for Round 3 if the Sharks are able to advance tonight.

Clutterbuck (undisclosed) will be a game-time decision for Game 3.

Clutterbuck was hurt in Game 2 in Brooklyn but travel to Carolina for Game 3 and remains a game-time decision for Wednesday’s tilt. If looks like Michael Dal Colle will be in the lineup regardless of Clutterbuck’s status, so expect the rugged winger to replace Tom Kuhnhackl if he ends up playing.

Mrazek (lower-body) skated on Wednesday but won’t play in Game 3.

The Hurricanes got some good news on the injury front on Wednesday, as the Mrazek injury was not as bad as they had originally feared. Their No.1 netminder was able to take to the ice on Wednesday morning, which is a good sign for his potential availability for Game 4 on Friday.

Ferland (upper-body) will not play in Game 3 but could return for Game 4.

The Hurricanes could get Andrei Svechnikov and Jordan Martinook back in Game 3 but they will have to wait at least one more game for Ferland. The 27-year-old has been out since Game 3 of the first round but was on the ice again on Wednesday and is targeting a Game 4 return. The Hurricanes have moved out to a 2-0 series lead and will be even more dangerous when all three forwards are healthy and back in the lineup.
