Ottawa Senators GM Pierre Dorion said Monday that centre Josh Norris does not require shoulder surgery at the moment after consulting with five doctors and two specialists.

\n\n\n\n

Dorion added it's a \"completely different\" shoulder injury than the one that sidelined Norris in the past.

\n\n\n\n

\"We initially thought that he would require surgery,\" Dorion said. \"Last week he went and met with two specialists and they both indicated that with this type of injury, we could look at rehab and strengthening, and that's what he's going to do until the new year and at that point in time we'll see what path we go down.

\n\n\n\n

\"We just feel with the timeline if he has surgery now, or let's just say in the new year, it doesn't affect anything because it's probably a six-month thing.\"

\n\n\n\n

Dorion added he doesn't know if Norris will still need surgery in the future but added: \"All I know is that we'll have an update in January ... or the new year and at that point in time we'll see where we're going to go with Josh.\"
