Ducks' Hampus Lindholm: Expected back in early November

Lindholm underwent surgery for a torn labrum in May and is expected to return to the lineup Nov. 1.

Lindholm took part in offseason workouts with his teammates, which should help with his on-ice conditioning once he is ready to return to action. Given general manager Bob Murray's timeline, the defender could miss up to 11 games during the opening month of the season. With Lindholm and fellow blueliner Sami Vatanen (shoulder) both sidelined, youngster Jaycob Megna and Korbinian Holzer could be in line for significant roles out the gate.
