VIDEO: Darryl Sutter has surgery performed by a robot

If you missed the recent report on CBS Los Angeles, here’s an in-depth update on Kings coach Darryl Sutter’s recent surgery performed by a robot – including comments about his recovery and current condition…

[UPDATE - June 23, 2013] During a conference call earlier today to discuss the trade of Jonathan Bernier to Toronto, Kings GM Dean Lombardi was asked about Sutter’s double hernia surgery and replied with some good-nature teasing. Take a look:

“You know what? I don’t want him to get any sympathy at all because that stubborn whatever…Clearly he was aware of this last year, and during the lockout he was told to have it taken care of…So, not only did he do one of his finest coaching jobs – I can remember how many mornings he’d come in, and he was in pain, but he wouldn’t let anybody know. I told him at that time, ‘You’ve got no sympathy from me buddy because this could’ve been done back in November, but you just didn’t want to do it.’ He was in a lot of pain there this week, but no sympathy. I don’t want you guys giving him any either. But if you had gone through the year, there were some mornings I know he was hurting, and you talk about players playing injured – I mean this guy was injured, and he was still playing every day and nobody knew. But I remember some times he couldn’t get up…It’s like ‘Ah, it’s going to go away.’ What? There’s your classic Western Canadian. He’ll fight you right to the end…The other thing too, he said, ‘Well, I want to set an example to the players that I can play injured, so I want to set an example.’ Hey, good job. So you’ve proven to your players that you can perform injured. I don’t want you giving him any sympathy for this when you’re talking to him.”
