1 Comment

The Buffalo Sabres could soon be without defenseman Josh Gorges for the remainder of the season due to a lower-body injury, according to the Buffalo News.

A decision hasn’t been made yet, but one is on the way, and soon for the veteran blue liner.

“It’s leaning that way, but we’ll see in the next little bit here,” said Sabres head coach Ted Nolan, as per Buffalo News.

“He’s getting final information. He’ll make a final decision in probably 24 to 48 hours.”

The 30-year-old Gorges last played on Feb. 10 against the Ottawa Senators. The Sabres host the New York Rangers on Friday.

This season, Gorges, traded from Montreal to Buffalo last July, has zero goals and six assists in 46 games for the last-place Sabres.
