Joel Ward today revealed in an interview with Toronto’s 102.1 The Edge that he recently had surgery for a sports hernia.

The Capitals winger — who played both the hero and the goat during Washington’s playoff run this past spring — didn’t say when he suffered the injury or whether it was a lingering issue during the season, though he did have an awkward story to tell about his recovery.

Ward also talked about the follow-up to some of the racist sentiments directed at him after his Game 7 winning goal in the first round of the playoffs. Read more over at the D.C. Sports Bog.
