Bruno Gervais D PHI 6 Months
Bruno Gervais has recovered from his abdominal tear.
"Dr. Meyers did a great job on me," Gervais said. "Guys fly in here from all over the country to have him do their surgeries. I don't even feel it anymore." He had been in considerable pain beforehand, which prevented him pushing off when skating and could not resist getting pulled down because he had no strength. Gervais had been dealing with the ailment for a while before he underwent surgery and was finally shut down. He's expected to be fine for training camp, but he'll have to compete for a roster spot.

Bruno Gervais will undergo surgery to repair a torn stomach muscle and will be sidelined indefinitely.
It's not clear when Gervais suffered the injury but it shouldn't affect fantasy lineup given his minimal production. Gervais will likely miss the remainder of the season. He has one goal and six points in 37 points this season.

Bruno Gervais was a healthy scratch for Philadelphia's opening two games, but he has played in eight straight since then.
"It seems like he's fit right in and he understands the way we've wanted to play," coach Peter Laviolette said. "He skates well. He's constantly looking to add to the back end of the rush. He's been a really steady player for us, night in and night out, since he's been in the lineup." He has goal, 12 shots and a minus-3 rating on the year.

Bruno Gervais and Max Talbot organized a players' tour to raise money for local Quebec charities, and Thursday they played at the Colise.
The series of exhibition games is a way for players to attempt to stay in game shape, while giving back to the community as well. Hall Gill, Brian Gionta and Carey Price were among the participants. The game drew 5,600, though it could've been more of a success with the capacity of the Colise at 15,000. "We were hoping we'd get more people," Gervais said. "I thought with this city wanting a team, there would be more but I think the fans who were here got a good show." More players are expected to attend as the work stoppage drags on.
