The Buffalo Sabres announced today that goaltender Linus Ullmark will miss approximately three to four weeks with a lower-body injury.
He sustained the injury midway through the third period of last night's game when he fell backward while tracking the play behind the net. He was helped off the ice and did not return.
Ullmark, 26, has started 33 of Buffalo's 50 games this season. He's 16-14-3 with his 16 wins marking a career high. He's posted a 2.72 goals-against average and a .914 save percentage with one shutout.
This morning, the Sabres recalled goaltender Jonas Johansson from the Rochester Americans. Johansson represented the Amerks at the 2020 AHL All-Star Classic earlier this week.
Buffalo is set to practice at noon. We'll have full coverage here on Sabres.com. The Sabres host the Montreal Canadiens tomorrow night at KeyBank Center.
