Ottawa Senators goaltender Marcus Hogberg is considered week-to-week with an undisclosed lower-body injury, coach D.J. Smith announced Saturday.
Hogberg allowed one goal on five shots before exiting in the first period of Thursday’s 7-3 setback to the Toronto Maple Leafs. The loss dropped Ottawa to an NHL-worst 4-14-1 (nine points) on the season.
“[Hogberg] will be out for sure for a week or so, probably a couple weeks,” Smith said.
Hogberg owns a 2-5-0 record with a 4.34 goals-against average and .859 save percentage in 10 games (seven starts) this season. The 26-year-old Swede sports a 7-15-9 mark with a 3.49 GAA and .892 save percentage in 38 career games (32 starts) with the Senators.
