    Sabres' Zemgus Girgensons: Undergoes hamstring surgery

    Zemgus Girgensons underwent surgery to repair a hamstring injury Wednesday and is expected to be sidelined for approximately six months.With an expected recovery timetable of six months, Girgensons will almost certainly miss the entirety of the 2020-21 campaign, even if the Buffalo Sabres make a deep playoff run.

Tobias Rieder, Rasmus Asplund and Riley Sheahan are the leading candidates to fill in for Girgensons, who will undoubtedly be placed on long-term injured reserve, during the upcoming campaign.

    Sabres' Zemgus Girgensons: Decent bet to return to Buffalo

    With the Buffalo Sabres being one of seven NHL teams that won't be part of the playoffs, Zemgus Girgensons has played his last game of 2019-20 and will soon become an unrestricted free agent, Lance Lysowski of The Buffalo News reports.Girgensons, the No. 14 overall pick in 2012, has turned out to be a much better player in real life than fantasy, with a high of just 30 points back in his second NHL season. But he's a good penalty killer and has a much better all-around game than the average fourth liner, so his mollified stats could make him pretty affordable in the likely event the Sabres try to lure him back with a new contract.
