BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — Buffalo Sabres forward Zemgus Girgensons is expected to miss the entire season after having surgery to repair a hamstring injury he suffered in a team scrimmage on Monday.

The Sabres announced Girgensons’ injury upon returning to training camp Wednesday following a day off and said the timetable for recovery is about six months.

The Latvian was preparing for his eighth season in Buffalo after being re-signed to a three-year, $6.6 million contract in October.

Sabres captain Jack Eichel made his training camp debut after missing the first four days with a lower body injury.

Goalie Linus Ullmark also practiced for the first time after completing his self-quarantine requirements.
