GLENS FALLS, NY – The Adirondack Phantoms,
proud AHL affiliate of the Philadelphia Flyers of
the National Hockey League, announced today that
left wing Krys Kolanos has undergone successful
hip surgery and will begin rehabbing immediately.
Kolanos’ surgery was successfully performed
by Dr. Thomas Byrd on Tuesday, February 16th at
Baptist Hospital in Nashville, Tennessee. He will
begin rehab on Wednesday, although no return date
has been set at this time.
Kolanos, 28, has not played since January 16th
at Norfolk, when he carried a three-game point streak
(3 goals, 2 assists) into the AHL All-Star Break.
The Calgary, Alberta native has 15 points (9 goals,
6 assists) in 27 games for Adirondack this season;
he has missed the Phantoms' last 13 games due to

NHL Entry Draft, Kolanos was signed by Philadelphia
as a free agent in July of 2009. Over parts of five
NHL seasons with Phoenix Coyotes, Edmonton and Minnesota,
Kolanos has compiled 41 points (20 goals, 21 assists)
in 136 career games.
