Anaheim Ducks centre Ryan Kesler is expected to miss the coming season after undergoing right-hip resurfacing surgery last week.

The Ducks said the surgery was performed May 9 by Dr. Edwin Su in New York. The procedure is less invasive than a full hip replacement and does allow for the possibility for Kesler to resume his career following a lengthy recovery.

General manager Bob Murray said in a statement the organization will support any decision he makes regarding his future.
