I havn't heard any update about his injury but to me it looked like he hurt his back the way he was grimacing whenever he moved. That could be a major injury.
During Hockey Hotline Jason Bristol reported that Dumont suffered a hip injury. He also stated that he would probably miss about a week of action. I certainly hope that's the case. Guess we'll find out more later in the day.
That's because leading scorer J.P. Dumont sustained a right hip injury 7:45 into the game.
Dumont said he hoped to be back in two weeks, but added a team doctor informed him it could be "a few weeks." Sabres coach Lindy Ruff said Dumont will be out at least one week.
Dumont fell awkwardly on a routine play in which defenseman Aaron Ward had him hooked. Dumont dropped to all fours after trying to get up. He howled in extreme agony for several minutes before linemates Daniel Briere and Jochen Hecht could gingerly guide him off the ice.
