Ryan O'Dwyer has all but been ruled out of Dublin's Allianz NHL campaign.

The Tipperary man underwent surgery on a long-standing shoulder problem and is now expected to miss Dublin's Division 1B campaign.

O'Dwyer, who had the operation early in December, is only out of the sling in the last week and not expected to be available to return to the playing field until April.
