Bogosian to Miss 4-6 weeks due to injury

Tampa Bay Lightning defenseman Zach Bogosian will miss 4-6 weeks due to a lower body injury he sustained in a 6-2 loss to Pittsburgh Penguins.

The 31 year old Massena New York signed a three-year, $2.55 million contract with the Lightning in July. He skated in 45 games with the Toronto Maple Leafs last season, recording four assists.

This is his second stint with the Bolts. His first time around ended with him winning the Stanley Cup back in 2020.

With the time being, the Tampa Bay Lightning have called up Andrej Sustr to make a name for the Bolts defense.

Bogosian has missed time due to injuries in some of his career in the NHL. On October 28, 2008 during his rookie season, he broke his leg in a game against the Philadelphia Flyers, he also didn’t dress up at times during the 2016-17 NHL season due to a torn MCL and missed all but 18 games in the 2017-2018 season.

In 690 games, the third overall pick in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft has scored 53 goals, 147 assists and 200 points with Lightning, Maple Leafs, Buffalo Sabres, Atlanta Thrashers and Winnipeg Jets.
