Afternoon Player Notes in the Draft (Jan 26)
The 2018 season has now concluded for Sabres defenseman Zach Bogosian, after the team and the player both agreed that hip surgery was a logical decision moving forward, looking ahead to the 2019 season, more than anything else. Bogosian has been dealing with a hip problem since the start of the season, but a combination of the hip and another lower-body injury, suffered in January, made the decision a little more straight-forward for both parties and the surgery needs an extended period of time for recovery, but they expect the 27-year old to be 100% for training camp.
I don't think there was going to be any hesitation on Wilton's part to cut ties with Bogosian in this week's Waiver Draft, it will be a matter of when than if at all. Wilton's team goes into the break in 4th place and a couple of tweaks could certainly help his team get back into the conversation.
