Cozens training camp in question
Injury update: Forward Dylan Cozens underwent successful surgery on his injured left thumb earlier this week. His expected recovery time is approximately two to three months.

Lethbridge Hurricanes forward Dylan Cozens may not be available to the team when their training camp starts up in mid to late August. The Whitehorse, Yukon native was a seventh overall pick of the Buffalo Sabres in the 2019 NHL Entry Draft and sustained a thumb injury in an attempt to cushion his fall after a hip check at last month’s Sabres development. The injury will certainly keep him out of the World Junior Summer Showcase which takes place later this month and with a recovery time of up to three months, the injury could even cut into the Hurricanes regular season. It’s certainly a situation Hurricanes fan will want to keep their eyes on.
