ATLANTA -- Eric Lindros will undergo surgery on his right shoulder, Rangers GM Glen Sather announced Tuesday, ending his season and likely his career as a New York Ranger.

Lindros, who has been bothered by shoulder pain all season, will have a torn labrum repaired. The 31-year-old forward has been out since Jan. 28 when he was drilled by Washington's Jason Doig. That hit caused the eighth concussion of his career.

While recovering from his latest head injury, the 31-year-old Lindros felt soreness in his shoulder on Feb. 29 while shooting pucks in practice. He met with doctors last week. Sather held a conference call, before the Rangers went out and beat Atlanta 2-0 Tuesday night, to announce that his forward would have surgery.

Lindros would like to have the surgery sometime in the next two weeks.

"My head feels great, exceptionally well. And I was cleared to play" on Feb. 24, he was quoted as saying in The New York Times on Wednesday.

The Rangers hold a $10.25 million option on Lindros. Sather jettisoned a slew of players in the week leading up to Tuesday's trade deadline, leaving it unlikely that the team would exercise Lindros' option.

The Rangers obtained 16 players (12 of them younger than 25) and six draft choices, and claimed three players off waivers.

Sather said Tuesday that several teams inquired about Lindros' availability before it was revealed that his shoulder was hurting.

"The injury stuff stopped [the interest]," Sather said.

In his third season with the Rangers, the 1995 NHL MVP has 10 goals and 22 assists in 39 games. He was traded to New York by Philadelphia after sitting out a season because of a bitter feud with Flyers general manager Bob Clarke and while recovering from his seventh concussion.

I was once WOTD, and nobody bothered to tell me?
