The Buffalo Sabres have recalled goaltender Jhonas Enroth
from Portland of the American Hockey League to fill in for an injured Patrick Lalime.
Lalime hurt his groin during Monday’s practice. Head Coach Lindy Ruff said it’s unclear when he will return.
“You never know with groins. We hope its not long, but it depends on how it responds,” he said.Ryan Miller
will start tonight’s match-up against the New York Islanders, but Ruff said if Lalime is not ready to play by the weekend, Enroth will likely make his season debut.
“We’re going to stick to the program,” Ruff said.
After compiling a .914 save percentage in his AHL rookie season, Enroth (6/25/1988, 5’10”, 166 lbs.), has struggled out of the gate in the 2009-10 campaign. The netminder is 3-7 in his first 10 games, with a 3.90 GAA and 0.872 save percentage.
