BUFFALO, NY (WKBW) — The Buffalo Sabres have already suffered an injury to their lineup, less than two weeks before the regular season begins.
Zemgus Girgensons has undergone successful surgery to repair a hamstring injury he suffered in Monday's scrimmage. The expected recovery time is six months which means he could miss the entire season.
Girgensons was skating in Monday's scrimmage when he tried to intercept the puck. He wound up getting tangled, split his legs, and went down to the ice. He needed assistance getting to the locker room and wasn't putting any pressure on his leg at the time.
The Sabres will open the season on January 14th.
