Leino Out For Several Weeks

from Mike Harrington of Sabres Edge,

Ville Leino is out several weeks with a lower body injury suffered last night against Ottawa. Leino played 14:49 in the game but took only one shift in the final 9:25 of play, a 56-second run that ended with 1:01 left.

So it’s pretty clear he had some sort of knee or foot problem he was dealing with. (Just guessing here but players often skate with a broken bone in their foot that’s set in their boot until they take the skate off and the injury is discovered).

Leino has three goals and seven assists thus far, a huge disappointment after signing his six-year, $27 million contract that currently ranks as one of the NHL’s biggest boondoggles of last summer.

Not quite the same as it is with Jokerit, eh, Leino?
