Fremantle forward Hayden Ballantyne could miss the first eight games of the AFL season while he recovers from surgery for a hamstring injury.

Ballantyne damaged his left hamstring in the third quarter of the Dockers' 21-point pre-season win over Carlton at Domain Stadium on Friday.

"At this stage the medical advice is that Hayden will require a rehabilitation phase of eight to 10 weeks," general manager of football operations Chris Bond said on Monday.
