Mason Stajduhar undergoes knee surgery


Orlando City have confirmed back-up goalkeeper Mason Stajduhar has undergone successful surgery to repair a left knee meniscus tear.

Born in Salem, Massachusetts, Stajduhar has been with Orlando since 2013, signing a homegrown contract in 2015 – just the fourth player in club history to do so.

Since then, the 23-year-old has made just six senior appearances for the Lions – all this season – keeping one clean sheet, with most of his time on the pitch coming during a 2019 loan spell at FC Tulsa.

Stajdhuhar has most recently played second-fiddle to Peru international Pedro Gallese, who is currently away on international duty. Even so, Stajduhar was ruled out of Orlando’s 3-2 win over Columbus Crew on Saturday with an initially undisclosed injury, with Adam Grinwis lining up between the sticks instead.

On Sunday, Orlando confirmed Stajduhar had undergone surgery, performed by the club’s chief medical officer and orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Craig Mintzer.
