Batherson will be out long-term with an ankle injury, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

Batherson was hurt in the first period of Tuesday's game versus the Sabres, and the injury will keep him out at least through the All-Star break. Given the timeline for his return, it wouldn't be surprising to see the Senators put Batherson on injured reserve. Nick Paul could see an expanded role in Batherson's absence.
