BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — Another injury has hit the Buffalo Sabres, this time to the goaltender position.

The team announced Linus Ullmark will miss 3-4 weeks with a lower-body injury. He went down in Tuesday night's game against the Senators in a fluke-like play and needed help off the ice, putting little to no pressure on his right leg.

Ullmark has started in 33 games this season, recording a 16-14-3 record, a 2.72 goals against average and a .914 save percentage. Carter Hutton will most likely get the start on Thursday when the team hosts Montreal.

The team also recalled Jonas Johansson from the Rochester Americans Wednesday morning. Johansson has posted a 13-3-3 record in 20 games played with the Amerks that includes a 2.19 goals-against average, a .925 save percentage, and two shutouts.
