BUFFALO, N.Y. (February 20, 2018) — The Buffalo Sabres today announced that defenseman Jake McCabe is scheduled to undergo surgery to repair an injured shoulder.
“Jake has been progressing well in his recovery from his previous injury, but we decided that this was a good opportunity to take care of a problem that he has been dealing with for a while,” Sabres General Manager Jason Botterill said. “Jake will have time to fully recover before the beginning of the 2018-19 season.”
The procedure has an estimated recovery time of four to six months. As a result, McCabe will remain on injured reserve for the duration of the season.
