Following his on-ice testing, Gaustad spoke to the media to talk about the upcoming season, and reported that he had offseason surgery earlier this summer to repair a sports hernia.

Ryan Miller discussed his busy offseason, including his attendance at the United States Olympic Hockey Camp - describing it as more of an 'orientation than a tryout' for the players to get acclimated with the team.
Miller also spoke about the recovery of his ankle sprain that he suffered in February during a game against the New York Rangers.
