Penguins defenseman Ryan Whitney underwent successful surgery to his wrist Thursday in Pittsburgh. According to team officials, Whitney will immediately begin rehabilitation, which will last six to eight weeks, and is expected to be ready for training camp in September.

Whitney was bothered by the injury over the final three months of the Penguins' season, which ended with a five-game loss to the Ottawa Senators in the opening round of the Stanley Cup playoffs. He scored a goal and was a minus-4 in the series against Ottawa.

Whitney, 24, scored 14 goals and recorded 59 points for the Penguins during the regular season. He was the No. 6 scoring defenseman in the National Hockey League.
