Ryan Kesler's agent doesn't think his client will be ready to play before December.
Kesler is recovering from his recent shoulder surgery. "He's not ahead of schedule and there's no rushing him back," agent Kurt Overhardt said. "He's on course to return in December and he's not returning until he's 100 per cent. Don't expect him until December." Kesler also had minor surgery on his left wrist. He had a disappointing 22 goals and 49 points in 77 games last season.
