Lehner is more than six weeks into a 6-10 week timetable. Many reports suggest that Lehner suffered a setback, but head coach Dan Bylsma disagreed. “I don’t think I would call it a setback," Bylsma said. "He got to the point where he started upping his rehab level and that’s where he had to back off of that a bit.” Lehner is reportedly still wearing a walking boot and will need more time before he returns to the crease.
Lehner is expected to miss 6-10 weeks with a high-ankle sprain.
Lehner suffered the injury in the Sabres’ season opener on Thursday. He will miss at least a month and a half, but could be out for 10 weeks. In the meantime the Sabres will go with Chad Johnson as their starter, but don’t be surprised if they make a trade for another goalie.
Lehner (leg) is expected to miss an extended period of time.
Halfway through his first game with his new team, Lehner suffered a fluky injury that is going to force him to “miss some time” according to Sabres head coach Dan Bylsma. Lehner went behind the net to play the puck and when he returned to the crease and went into the butterfly, he suffered a leg injury. Lehner was unable to put any weight on his leg and was spotted wearing a walking boot on his right foot after the game. Chad Johnson will take over as the Sabres netminder in the meantime.
