Tuesday night in a game between the Ottawa Senators and the Buffalo Sabres, Sabres Goalie Aaron Dell leaned into Sens RW Drake Batherson as he was coming around the net, sending him into the boards and injuring his ankle. Batherson was set to make his first All-Star Game appearance next weekend in Vegas, but will miss the game as a result of the injury, and is said to be out “long term”.
