Surgery for Kasdorf appears forthcoming -- Appert

TROY -- It wasn't in Seth Appert's words but it was in his voice: standout sophomore goaltender Jason Kasdorf will soon undergo surgery on his right shoulder and will be lost to RPI hockey for the remainder of the season.
The eight-year Rensselaer coach stopped short of saying the decision on surgery has been finalized, but it certainly sounded like a short stop.
 "Everything looks like he's going to have surgery," Appert said of Kasdorf, who separated his shoulder in practice on Oct. 15. "He's almost certain to have surgery."
"Hasn't officially been decided," Appert said.
Kasdorf posted a 14-5-2 record last season, keying the Engineers' rise up the ECAC Hockey standings. He had a 1.62 goals against average and 93.5 saves percentage.
Thrust into the starting goaltending position, junior Scott Diebold has been brilliant since Kasdorf's injury, with a 4-1-1 record, having allowed just one goal in that defeat and posting a 1.58 goals against average and 94.6 percent saves percentage.
Kasdorf is a draft pick of the National Hockey League's Winnipeg Jets, his hometown team.
Should the surgery take place, Appert said he expected Kasdorf to return to RPI next season.
