BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — Sabres goalie Carter Hutton won't travel with the team this weekend. Head coach Ralph Krueger confirmed that in a press conference after practice on Thursday.
"He won't be on this trip, and we'll assess him when we get back," Krueger said. "It's important he gets some rest."
Hutton missed the third period of the Sabres' last game against the Flyers on Tuesday. Philadelphia defenseman Ivan Provorov ran into him in the second period of a 3-0 loss.
Jonas Johansson had been recalled from the taxi squad earlier this week while Linus Ullmark sat out for personal reasons. Ullmark revealed today that he found out he had lost his father on Monday.
Buffalo's next game is on the road against the Washington Capitals on Friday at 7:00 p.m.
