PHILADELPHIA -- Flyers captain Mike Richards has had surgery on his left shoulder and will need 10 weeks of rehabilitation.

The surgery Friday was on a torn labrum. Last month, he had surgery on his right shoulder.

Richards' shoulders had bothered him since training camp and he used anti-inflammatory medication to manage the pain.

He had 30 goals and 80 points this season in helping the Flyers reach the playoffs.
