Minnesota Wild left wing Thomas Vanek is expected to be ready for the start of training camp as he continues to recover from hernia surgery, according to the Star Tribune. Vanek, who underwent a procedure to repair multiple hernias in his left groin in June, has already resumed skating.

Vanek underwent surgery for a sports hernia last week, Michael Russo of the Star Tribune reports.

The injury reportedly bothered Vanek for much of the second half of the season, and wasn't healing on its own, which prompted the Wild to take the surgical route to ensure Vanek will be ready for the start of next season. The recovery time for such a procedure is typically about six weeks, so the Wild expect Vanek to be 100 percent healthy at the start of their training camp in September. He registered 52 points in 80 games for Minnesota this past season.

Vanek picked up two assists in Friday's Game 1 loss to the Blackhawks.

While Vanek is yet to score in these playoffs, he's got three assists in his last three games and is getting his chances, firing three shots on goal in each of his last three outings. While he's currently skating on the third line, he's still playing on the loaded top power-play unit and is capable of going on a big hot streak. If the Wild hope to get past Chicago, Vanek will need to elevate his game and be a difference maker.
