Star New York Rangers winger Marian Gaborik, who many people suspected was playing hurt or injured in the 2012 NHL Playoffs, will be out months due to a torn rotator cuff. Reports from a Slovakian Newspaper indicate that he could be out up to six months recovering from the surgery. Unfortunately, this means that Gaborik will almost certainly miss the beginning of the 2012-2013 season.
