Ott underwent surgery to repair his abdominal area in Philadelphia earlier this week, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Analysis:

The procedure likely won't jeopardize Ott's chances of being healthy before training camp. The 31-year-old totaled only three points in 23 regular-season contests after the Blues acquired him from Buffalo at the trade deadline. He'll be a restricted free agent in the offseason, but it remains to be seen if the Blues have any interest in retaining him.
