Blue Jackets wingers Marian Gaborik and Jared Boll each had successful abdominal surgeries today in Philadelphia. Gaborik had surgery to adjust a "mesh patch" that was put in place during a sports hernia surgery he had in 2001, following his rookie season with the Minnesota Wild. He's expected to need 3-4 weeks for recovery, and will spend much of that time in Columbus. He'll spend the next few days in New York tying up loose ends following his traded to the Blue Jackets in early April.
