The general manager for the men's U.S. hockey team is recovering from a third surgery after a puck hit him when he was at Xcel Energy Center.

David Poile had surgery on Valentine's Day at Vanderbilt Medical Center in Tennessee.

Doctors say they wanted to evaluate the damage around his eye. The GM for the Nashville Predators was hit while watching his team during a pre-game skate Feb. 6.

The incident prevented Poile from traveling to Sochi for the Olympics.
