Numminen believed the surgery would occur years down the line but doctors at The Cleveland Clinic advised the 39-year old defensemen have it done now.
“It was shocking,” said Numminen. “It was something that I wasn’t expecting and it really was surprising.”
Numminen, who has had two heart surgeries, will have a valve in his heart repaired on Thursday at The Cleveland Clinic.
The Sabres have suspended Numminen without pay for reporting to training camp physically unable to perform, something he is not thinking about.
“That’s I guess how the teams do their business, it’s not really on my list of worries or things to think about. It’s really on the side and not a big deal for me.”
