The injury bug continues to bite the Washington Capitals as today they announced that Carl Hagelin will be out indefinitely after having hip surgery. The arthroscopic procedure addressed a chronic issue in his left hip.

Hagelin did not take the ice for the Capitals' fitness test on the first day of Training Camp on September 22 and has not seen the ice since.
«He has a lower-body injury that needs to be addressed and we're working through the final parts of it right now. He'll be out indefinitely. It's been an issue that lingered that he played with," MacLellan added, «It's gotten worse as time's gone on. It's at a bad point right now.»

Hagelin was previously rehabbing a major eye injury. A teammate's stick blade ruptured the choroid in the back of Hagelin's left eye in February, forcing him to undergo two surgeries to try and repair the issue. Hagelin said on Breakdown Day in May that his vision will never return to 100 percent.
Hagelin is in the final year of a contract that pays $2.75 million per season. He's currently on the Capitals' long-term injured reserve list.
