Terrible news.

An already abysmal season has been rendered even worse with the news that defenseman Zach Bogosian will undergo hip surgery, effectively ending his year with the Buffalo Sabres.

His 4 to 6 month recovery period hopefully puts him in shape to return by training camp for the 2018-19 season. 

The former 3rd overall pick in 2008 hasn't lived up to expectations, especially not after being acquired from the Sabres in a trade with the Winnipeg Jets.

The 27-year-old has only played 18 games this year, with only a single assist to show for it.

He made his season debut in December, after dealing with injuries for the first couple months of the season.

This season-ending injury occurred in practice while battling with Evander Kane for the puck. He was originally expected to be out for 4 to 6 weeks.

What an awful way to end a season.
