(HockeyStL) -- The Blues announced Jamie Langenbrunner underwent successful surgery on his left hip Friday.

The surgery to repair a torn labrum officially ends Langenbrunner’s season, but the Blues forward is hopeful to return to action next season.

Langenbrunner, 37, has been a viable option for the Blues during the shortened season and posted one assist in four games this year.

Acquired as a free agent after the 2010-11 season, Langenbrunner has played in 18 seasons in the NHL and posted 663 points (243 goals, 420 assists) in 1,109 games played.  He posted 24 points (six goals, 18 assists) in 70 games last season for the Blues.

The Minnesota native became the 21st American-born player to play in 1,100 games on March 27, 2012.
