Zach Werenski is hoping to be ready when the Columbus Blue Jackets open the NHL season at the Detroit Red Wings on Oct. 4 after having shoulder surgery.

"My goal, ultimately, is to be there for Game 1," the defenseman told the Blue Jackets website Tuesday. "You never want to miss time, you never want to miss games, so my goal going into training camp and into the season is to be ready for game one.

"If it's later, like game five or game 10, whenever that is, I'm going to work to miss as few games as possible and be ready to help the team."

The 21-year-old injured his shoulder in October but played the remainder of the season and Stanley Cup Playoffs before having surgery in May. The expected recovery was 5-6 months.
