Blues LW Paul Kariya undergoes hip surgery – again

ST. LOUIS – Blues forward Paul Kariya underwent surgery on his right hip Tuesday, a little more than a month after an operation to fix his left hip.

Kariya hasn’t played since Nov. 5 and is likely out for the season. St. Louis said in a statement that the surgery was successful and that Kariya will be sidelined indefinitely.
