Ladd (hernia) underwent successful surgery Friday and is expected to be ready for training camp.

Ladd played through the sports hernia near the end of the season, but underwent the procedure after the Jets were eliminated from the playoffs. With plenty of time to recover, Ladd should be fine to begin the 2015-16 campaign, and will look to build off this seasons' 62 points (24 goals, 38 assists) in 81 games.

Ladd will undergo surgery Friday to address a sports hernia, Paul Friesen of the Winnipeg Sun reports.

With several months to go before training camp, Ladd's availability shouldn't be at risk to begin the season. Despite playing through the sports hernia prior to the Jets' elimination in the first round of the playoffs, Ladd still finished with a career season, netting 24 goals, 62 points, and a plus-9 rating over 81 regular-season contests.

Ladd accumulated 12 hits and six shots on goal in Monday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Ducks in Game 3 of the first-round series.

Ladd finished second on the team this season with 212 hits in 81 games, but he'd never been quite as active at any point as we was Monday night. To give some perspective, the winger had recorded 14 hits over the previous six games combined, which isn't a shabby total in itself. Even though he's failed to register a point this series, Ladd has compensated for it degree by being highly active in the non-scoring categories.

Ladd scored a goal on the power play and added an assist Tuesday in a 5-2 win over the Sharks.

He'd gone two games in a row without a point between Tuesday and the prior Tuesday's game, in which he also had a goal and an assist. Ladd's now just two shy of his career high of 59 points, set in 2010-11, so he should break 60 for the first time this year.

Ladd tallied a power-play goal and an assist Tuesday in a 5-4 loss to the Blues.

With those two points, Ladd's now tied last year's goal total (23) and leapfrogged last year's point total (54 -- he's got 55 now). The 29-year-old is in the midst of his finest NHL campaign, and there's no reason to think he'll slow down from his career-best full-season scoring pace.
