Buffalo Sabres netminder Patrick Lalime revealed today that he recently underwent a pair of offseason hip surgeries.
The goaltender was unable to attend team practices in April due to the injury and Lindy Ruff reported he would be out for the remainder of the season.
As a guest on the Sabres Lunch Express on Wednesday, Lalime reported that following the regular season he not only underwent a procedure for a sports hernia, but that he also had arthroscopic surgery done on the other side of his hip.
“[They were] a couple surgeries back-to-back, but we’re doing good now,” Lalime said on the Web show. “We’re looking at about another month before I feel good again.”
