Tarasov (hip) underwent surgery Wednesday, Aaron Portzline of The Athletic reports. The goalie's recovery time is expected to be six months.

Tarasov had been out since suffering a lower-body injury Jan. 1. He tried to rest and recover, but it was decided surgery was the better option. The 22-year-old is expected to be ready to play by training camp, where he'll likely compete for a spot on the Blue Jackets' roster next season.
