Boyle surgery set for Friday



Defenseman Dan Boyle will have surgery to repair the two tendons in his left wrist that have not healed from his original surgery Sept. 23, the team announced.

The surgery will be performed by Thomas Graham, the vice chairman for the Department of Orthopedic Surgery at Union Memorial Hospital in Baltimore. Graham was recommended to Boyle, the team said, by Lightning medical director Ira Guttentag and his associate Richard Gray, who performed the original surgery on Boyle, and Boyle's agent George Bazos.

No word on how long Boyle will be sidelined.
