Koivu is hopeful that he can be back for training camp in September, but cautioned that it's too soon to place any sort of definitive timetable.

The center was sixth on the team with 29 points this season and averaged 18:18 of ice time per game, third among forwards. He led the team with a 54.6 face-off percentage.
