The NHL's New York Rangers have announced that Czech ice hockey star Jaromir Jagr will undergo surgery to a dislocated left shoulder on Monday. Jagr suffered the injury in the third period of the first game of the Rangers' first-round playoff series against New Jersey. After missing game two, Jagr struggled in game three and took another hit in the shoulder in game four to end his season. The Devils ousted the Rangers in a four-game sweep. Jagr, a finalist for this year's Most Valuable Player award, set Rangers' franchise records with 54 goals and 123 points this season.
