The Rochester Knighthawks announced today that forward and former National Lacrosse League MVP Cody Jamieson had successful surgery to repair a torn anterior crucial ligament (ACL). The surgery was performed on Feb. 15 by team orthopedic surgeon Dr. Ilya Voloshin.
“Thanks everyone for the well wishes again,” Jamieson posted on Instagram. “Feeling like we just went through this, but I had a successful ACL reconstruction. Can’t wait to get back training to play with the boys!”
The 29-year-old suffered the injury on Jan. 28 at the Air Canada Centre after posting two assists in a 9-8 win over the Toronto Rock.
The former first overall pick ranks third all-time in team history in goals (199), assists (329) and points (528). Over his seven seasons in the NLL, Jamieson has won three Champion’s Cups and two Championship Game MVP honors.
