Buffalo Sabres coach Dan Bylsma offered an update on injured forward Johan Larsson on Monday and announced that the 24-year-old was going to be out “indefinitely” after undergoing surgery to repair elbow and wrist injuries.
Just a few hours later Larsson revealed to the Buffalo News that his season is finished.
Larsson was injured early in Saturday’s 3-1 loss to the Boston Bruins when he fell hard into the boards and dislocated his elbow and wrist following a hit from defenseman Adam McQuaid.
This is the hit.
In 36 games for the Sabres this season Larsson had six goals and five assists and was on pace to set new career highs across the board.
Picked in the second round of the 2010 draft (No. 56 overall) by the Minnesota Wild, the Sabres acquired Larsson at the 2012-13 trade deadline in the trade that sent Jason Pominville to Minnesota.
