Buffalo Sabres general manager Kevyn Adams announced Friday that goaltender Eric Comrie is expected to miss multiple weeks due to a lower-body injury.
Comrie exited Wednesday’s game against the Ottawa Senators midway through the second period. Sabres star defenseman Rasmus Dahlin checked Mathieu Joseph into the crease as the Senators forward drove to the net, inadvertently causing him to crash into Comrie.
The 27-year-old posted a 4-7-0 record to go along with a .887 save percentage and 3.62 goals against average.
With Comrie out, Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen was recalled from the Rochester Americans.
