Sabres defenseman Zach Bogosian out with sprained knee
BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — Buffalo Sabers defenseman Zach Bogosian is out indefinitely with a sprained ligament in one of his knees.
Coach Dan Bylsma says Bogosian sprained his medial collateral ligament and will miss several weeks. Bylsma provided the update on Thursday, before the Sabres host the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Bogosian was hurt in the first period of Buffalo’s 2-1 win at Minnesota on Tuesday.
He’s a top-four defenseman who has no points in nine games and is averaging just under 19 minutes of ice time per outing.
The Sabres are already missing two top-line forwards, Jack Eichel (sprained left ankle) and Evander Kane (broken ribs).
